Give Thanksgiving its due… (a pseudo rant)

Well, another year has come by, and it seem like I was seeing Christmas stuff even earlier this year. Per my own “tradition” here are some thoughts on being thankful just a bit longer…

Thanksgiving doesn’t get its due anymore. While I used to complain a little about the Christmas products and music going up in the stores before Thanksgiving came, this year I saw them the day before Halloween in a few places! But that’s another story (to quote an old history professor of mine).

Thanksgiving, in my mind, has long been a holiday about relaxation and taking a step back to gather the bigger picture about things. I will fully acknowledge that the rest often doesn’t come until after the turkey is on the grill and most of the side dishes are prepared, but the fact remains that Thanksgiving is about having a big meal with your family, reflecting upon the things you have been blessed with, acknowledging another year of those blessings, and lots of pumpkin pie.
