In relation to the fall and winter holidays Thanksgiving is the least climatic of all since, you do not have to dress in costume, decorate the house in twinkling lights or shop for gifts. It is the one holiday that demands only one thing that we stop, take time to be with our loved ones, and share with those who are not as fortunate.

Around our house the day is quite casual with family and pets entirely underfoot. Everyone is gathered within the kitchen where delicious aromas emanate, and though the atmosphere is truly relaxed an extra place setting can easily be set to welcome friends without breaking our stride. Since, we are  we are tied to traditions that involve certain foods, colorful story-telling or listening to joyous holiday music, we can remember to be grateful for all we have and to be thankful for our loved ones.

I would like to wish everyone a very Safe and Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!
