Thanksgiving is the ultimate family-centered holiday.
Thanksgiving has no religious connotations, no national-celebration connotations, and no required gift-giving.
It asks nothing more from each of us than just showing up (other than for the person who is doing all the cooking) and enjoying the company of our family and friends and then having a great meal.
Even in this time of divisiveness in our country, we all can agree that Thanksgiving is a time to relax and and reflect on what we have to be thankful for. Despite our present trials and tribulations, Americans are remarkably fortunate to be where we are.
We wish all of our readers a happy and restful Thanksgiving.
