I'm torn on the late Thanksgiving, whether I like it or not. Thanksgiving is my favorite day of the year. I know it sounds strange, since I'm a Christmas nut. But, on Christmas day the season is almost over. On Thanksgiving it's in full swing and there's so much anticipation and excitement. Having a late Thanksgiving gives me more time to anticipate the day, once Halloween passes. But, it also means less time in the "official" Christmas season.
I am planning on decorating more this year for Halloween and Thanksgiving, so there will be decorations up. I may savor those decorations and stick with our tradition of putting up the tree the Friday after Thanksgiving, after my wife makes it back from Black Friday shopping.
