Enjoy A Day Like This... 

 

As Thanksgiving approaches, our thoughts and memories become flush with the remembrance of family, friends and food. Year after year, we always bring together pretty much the same people, in a warm home filled with the familiar smell of pecan pie, mashed potatoes, stuffing and other humid aromas we only seem to conjure up once a year.

Somehow we always manage to make Thanksgiving Day the same. Sometimes the people change; elders pass and new babies arrive. Sometimes the locations change, but we always re-create the scene. You know you will catch a glimpse of someone’s fingers glistening with turkey grease. You know someone will twirl and unfurl the linen table cloth which only emerges once a year.

Thanksgiving is like a genetic trait; handed down from generation to generation perhaps because the origin of Thanksgiving's tradition is itself inspirational. Though seen by many as an “American Holiday,” our Thanksgiving celebration predates America's by almost 100 years. This doesn't mean that one celebration was inspired by another. It's simply a case of two harvest festivals being celebrated at the same time of year under the same name.
 
This year as you're enjoying the sights, sounds and aromas of Thanksgiving, please know I am deeply thankful for the traditions we continue to share!

Happy Thanksgiving!
