Wishing everyone out there in Blog world a "Happy Thanksgiving". Only thing that bothers me to NO end though is the fact that it seems to be a forgotten holiday. Where did the giving of thanks give way to shopping like crazy for Christmas before Thanksgiving is even over? For myself by the time it feels like Christams the mood has left me. I am to the point that I hate shopping! I love the snow, decoration, horses running through the snow with the wind in their hair. Love the baking, writing actual cards, and catching with dear friends, but enough with thenotion we should buy, buy, buy. Enough, just let us step back and first give thanks for what we have.

  1. This is what I like about our Canadian Thanksgiving--it comes in October. Well in advance of the holiday season, so it's not crazy-rushed and geared toward super-sales.

    I wish you a wonder-full Thanksgiving, in spite of all the shopping hoopla. :-)

  2. I agree with you. Now that my kids are adults, I can just enjoy the Season. I don't like the crazy shopping.

  3. I am with you on that note! Nothing like working in retail to make you hate the whole commercialization of Christmas! The screaming children! The harried shoppers! Bah, humbug! Let's go sit in a quiet church for a spell! Or anywhere quiet!

  4. Thanksgiving Day comes, by statute, once a year; to the honest man it comes as frequently as the heart of gratitude will allow. And as we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
