Thanksgiving is a small holiday for our family. It is a quiet day to enjoy a nice meal with our family and a few friends. I know that the holiday has a dark history. We certainly don’t celebrate the traditional Thanksgiving tale. For us Thanksgiving is about gratitude.
We host Thanksgiving dinner and I cook most of the traditional meal, turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans and whatever else anyone wants that year. I do not consider myself a baker, so we go out and buy far too many delicious pies. We’ll have an early dinner and then go for a walk or play card games. We do not have the TV on at all, no parades, no football games. Maybe a little Supernatural after the kids go to bed and everyone goes home.
This year I am thankful for my family and friends. I am grateful that we are fortunate enough to live in a nice home, in a good school district. I am grateful for this blog and for all of the interesting librarians, authors and readers that I have met since starting it. Happy Thanksgiving!
