But let's be honest, those people are in the minority. Most stores start pumping out the holiday tunes in early November, and some of my more organized friends have been holiday shopping since approximately the Fourth of July (only a slight exaggeration). But if you skip straight from spooky Halloween to the cheery Christmas carols, you might be missing out on a pretty big celebration right in the middle—um, hello Thanksgiving! But Pier 1 didn't forget that it's decorative gourd season. And they've been offering up to 40% off Thanksgiving dinnerware, serving ware, and decorations ever since Halloween.
