Happy Thanksgiving, dearest Wordlers! This is perhaps my very favorite holiday of the year. It’s like Christmas without the gifts (and pressure and commercialism associated with gift-giving) though I love Christmas also, mainly for the same reasons I love Thanksgiving.
I suppose I like the lights and wintry coziness of Christmas also. I love driving around and seeing all the houses decorated with colorful lights. I love the smell of a Christmas tree in my home. I love Christmas music and all the little rituals around it. I just don’t like how it’s become this crazy shopping season where everyone has to go out and get stressed out finding the perfect gifts for everyone. You are the gift. We are all the gift. Spending time with loved ones is the gift. Not everyone has that. Not everyone is that lucky.
And that’s the great thing about Thanksgiving.
