In my family the official kick-off of the holiday season happens the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. We have Pie Night! We get together with all our friends and family and have pie. So the basic theory is that you over eat on Thanksgiving and you can't enjoy your pie because you're so over full. So the night before everyone brings pies to my parents house and we eat, drink, and be merry. It's a fab way to kick off the holidays. I bring all this up because I finished making the invitation for my parents this evening. Woohoo! Yay Pie Night!!
