Waiting to decorate for Christmas until the week of Thanksgiving has always been our thing here at Sound Styles. I know we have a retail store and that that traditionally means making the most of the Christmas selling season, but I just can’t do it. You see, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and I don’t want to overlook it. Thanksgiving reminds me of where we come from as a country and of being grateful. It’s a wonderful start to what is a season full of wonder and awe to me. Plus, it is one of the only days of the year that my family plays games together which I never take time to do otherwise. Hope I win this year.
 
Enjoy your family time and have a Happy Thanksgiving!

norwayWanna have some fun? Take a minute to Google “Men’s Norwegian Olympic Curling Team Pants” (<– or click right there) and check out the fashion of these guys. You'll see something a bit "out there", especially given that Norwegians tend to be conservative. I know because I am one. But what's with the pants?
three_insetThen, check out the picture above…Three beautiful Norwegian women, in Norway, sporting wild print leggings. Hmmm?
 
So, what is this wild pant thing in Norway? Do the Norwegians just have a “leg up on us”? Can we even “get to the bottom of it”?
 
Let me continue…
 
First of all, do you know that “the Norwegian Men’s Curling Team has the honor of quite possibly being the only Olympic team with an unofficial Facebook page dedicated to their pants?” With approximately 547,000 likes. Obviously wild pants have made their debut.
 
But back in early March my dear friend Rigmor (on the right) was visiting from Norway and the two of us spent an evening shopping for her at Sound Styles. She enjoys new ideas, so one of the items I showed her was a pair of printed leggings. As the custom, she gave me that “oh, really?” look and I, in turn, as the custom, gave her that “yes, don’t be afraid to try” look right back. So she did, and once the seed was planted she was not only buying them for herself but had a pair for two friends back home.
 
So, Norway takes the gold for the most wild pants and Sound Styles takes the silver.    ~Jenny
