Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because there's no religion, no politics, nothing..just good food and friends.
I have spent Thanksgivings abroad and felt at home, with just one patient and felt the spirit of the day, and with friends, family and acquaintances over the years. I love having a full table of folks I'm not gonna lie. Last year, I had to special order a turkey because I needed such a big one!
THis year, not so much. But I still think it's going to be great. All of my pies are done, the bread is dried for stuffing. I don't want to go to sleep, I just want to COOK!
It's my "Christmas" if you will. Well, aside for XC day of Rolex. That is REALLY Xmas for me. But aside from that, TDay is my holiday. LOVE IT.
Love to cook, love the get together. I can't help but be geeked about tomorrow!
A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.
I really agree. What I like about it is no deciding 'what's for dinner!' Everyone has their favorite family dishes, the food items are all on sale, all of the food tastes and goes so well together, no gift buying/giving - just family and friends - and plenty leftover to enjoy it all over again.

Thanksgiving is definitely my favorite holiday. It isn't religious, at all (well, you CAN make it that way, but whatever). And the commercialism that runs rampant in the states hasn't really managed to soil its beautiful intentions.
I love being reminded to think about all the things in my life to be grateful for. While I try to do it every day, it is nice to really spend a day doing it.
I'm a little sad this year won't be spent with my family (dinner later tonight with a dear friend who is also alone), but they are close to my heart today, and I am so, so, so thankful to have them.
