The Slice

It’s on

A case could be made that the “holiday season” unofficially starts today.

Sure, Thanksgiving is still almost a week away. But for some of us, the weekend before Thanksgiving is when the holidays vibe first starts to be felt. And today, the Friday before that milestone weekend, can usher in early inklings of a mood change.

Next week, Thanksgiving week, will feel different. No doubt about that.

And today, well, there's no escaping the fact that next week is now on the near horizon.

So when you are this close to the start, it sort of feels like the start itself. Right?

Feel free to festively disagree.
