We’re just a few weeks away from Thanksgiving, a holiday I absolutely love.  In fact I probably have more of a fondness and appreciation for this holiday over Christmas since it is not as commercialized.  The First Thanksgiving was celebrated by the Pilgrims after their first harvest in the New World.  Today Thanksgiving evokes images of football, family reunions, Thanksgiving parades, roasted turkey with stuffing, pumpkin pie and giving thanks.  For most Americans it is a 4 day weekend, Thanksgiving being celebrated on the 4th Thursday of November.  It is a holiday I look forward to as it involves togetherness, food, warmth and sharing.
