On the Subject of Thanksgiving

My family is wisely celebrating Thanksgiving on Saturday this year, as it's much better for everyone's disparate schedules to do our fooding in a weekendly fashion. So I'm heading homeward early tomorrow morning for some well-deserved, (not-quite-)total relaxation. Alas, coursework and projects follow me even to the sacred ground of Home.

I am always unduly excited about this holiday in particular. The weather is crappy, it's dark all the time, and school is just heading into the hectic final stretch: it can leave a person of average good cheer feeling like so much wet cardboard. But just then, along comes Thanksgiving with warmth and light and family and enough saturated fat to ensure a safe hibernation. It is a needed boost to help us remember what we have even during gray times.

For those not in the know, Thanksgiving is a noble and illustrious American tradition. Allow me to provide you with an illuminating diagram.


Thanksgiving.

I wish you all warmth, comfort and ample foodings, and I invite you to use this occasion to reflect upon all the things you are thankful for this season.

Thanksgiving on Saturday? That's BRILLIANT! And I love the illuminating diagram. And the phrase "ample foodings." Love the post--have a great Thanksgiving!

I don't know about Thanksgiving day being moved around like a picked-over turkey carcass, but I love the word"weekendly." And the concept of the T'day fats serving a noble purpose! Happy Thanksgiving - on whatever day you happen to be celebrating it. :)

So well said and the honest tone is very refreshing. Love the classic turkey drawing too.
