Happy Thanksgiving!

Today I’m thankful that the Pilgrims fled England, landed here, ate with the natives and came up with what has become the greatest holiday that we as Americans have.

That’s right. I’d choose Thanksgiving over Christmas, Easter, Fourth of July and Halloween any day. Think about it – It’s the one holiday that unites us regardless of one’s race, religion, age, orientation, affiliation … Anyone can celebrate it. You don’t even have to be American. It hasn’t been commercialized like everything else in America. You don’t give gifts or cards. You just prepare a really good meal. Best of all, the focus is on being thankful for what you have and spending time with the people that you love.

On that note, I’ll see you back here on Monday!
