Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. I must put the rumor to rest, I did not celebrate my first thanksgiving the year George Washington made it a holiday.
What makes Thanksgiving great is that it is a pure family and/or friends day. No pressure. No presents. Just good food and football. What could be better.
The only pressure is on the person responsible for the meal. I was that one twenty-eight times in a row and I loved it. The secret was, if I cooked, others cleaned up. If you have ever seen a kitchen after I cook a major meal. It is not a pretty sight.
So, give thanks for all that we have that is good. Ignore, for the day, all that we face that is bad. Eat hearty! Enjoy the games and the L=Tryptophan induced nap.
May you and yours have a wonderful and peaceful Thanksgiving.
From me and all the Cranky clan!
