Dinner, good conversation, and a national holiday

It’s hard to say what I like best about Thanksgiving. The food is great, the people and family I meet are good conversationalists, and a day off from work (plus an extra because of good work policies) all make me feel happy. But a day that I spend feeling thankful for all of these things, plus the normal everyday stuff — priceless. Hope you had a good day with family and/or friends, even if it isn’t a holiday for you. (Let’s see. Canada has Thanksgiving earlier in the year. Wonder if any other countries celebrate Thanksgiving?)

    We don’t have a Thanksgiving in Scotland but being thankful is something I should remember to do more often!

    Happy Thanksgiving.

      Thank you! Yes, I’m beginning to wonder what other countries might have decided to have a Thanksgiving. Had a fascinating conversation about how did Thanksgiving skip from the Pilgrims in New England to Abraham Lincoln announcing it as a holiday near the end of the Civil War. Did it just get celebrated privately all along, or was it revived, gasping, in a try to bring a splintered country together. Sounds like I need a brush up on American history.
