Merry Thanksgiving !!

Have you noticed how society has slowly ignored Thanksgiving?  It is almost as if it does not exist anymore.  Why?  Because Christmas is just around the corner!  People can’t wait for the lights to be shown, the tree to be decorated, and gifts to be wrapped.  Santa Claus is coming to town!  Oh wait, I was writing about Thanksgiving, right? Ok, well Thanksgiving is a holiday about giving thanks for the things we have… Things we have?  We must get up early on Black Friday because of the sales!  We have to get as many things as we can while they are still on the shelves.  Stores will be packed so time is of the essence!  Making  a wish list for Santa…! Oh, I forgot again what I was writing about.  Anyways, Thanksgiving is a holiday based on the historical story about the Pilgrims and the Indians who were giving thanks to God for their blessings.  Singing Christmas carols and preparing the meal for Christmas eve!  Oh wait, we don’t do that on Thanksgiving.  We just get together, eat turkey, pumpkin pie, and stuffing.   But on Christmas, we decorate with lights and Christmas trees, buy and exchange gifts, sing Christmas carols, and  tell kids to be good so that  Santa Claus can come to town.  Thanksgiving?  Who needs Thanksgiving, when you have Christmas around the corner, right?
