We want to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving! We are all excited about tomorrow when everyone close-by will be here, 20 people all together.
When we were living in Germany, we knew an Englishman who told us,
"You Yanks have the right idea about a holiday--you just stay home and eat. No church, no presents, not even cards. Just the feast."
Of course there is also the idea of gratitude and gathering around to dedicate a whole day to giving personal & family thanks. Now that's a great idea for a proper holiday!
