Turkey Hat

I love Thanksgiving. I would have to say it is one of my very favorite holidays. It is one of the few that haven't been commercialized. It is one of the few holidays that is still about family and being together. I love the food. I love the warmth and coziness. I love just being together with good friends, family and food. Oh, did I say the food part already? I look forward to setting a beautiful table. I delight in the smells and the leftovers.

I love that it is not about spending money and shopping and gimmicks and things.

Or so I thought. A few weeks ago I was flipping through a sales flyer that came in the mail when right there next to the chafing dishes I found this!

No kidding! Who would put this thing on their head? Or worse, subject their child to such torture? If you ask me this is nothing short of child abuse.

What do you think? Is there a stampede to Bed, Bath and Beyond for this stylish yet fun and festive hat?

  4. We have a friend who collects weird and crazy hats, I could see him adding this to his collection. Ahh, but I'm ready for the quietness of Thanksgiving and the joy it brings.

  6. That is just crazy? It looks like an ad from the 50's though. Maybe those hats are making a comeback!
