COLUMN — In praise of Thanksgiving

We skip over Thanksgiving, I think you know it’s true.

After Halloween, we jump straight to Christmas. Slow down. We need to give thanks for what we have.

The holidays will be here. The Christmas movies, the sales all will be waiting.

We just need to wait and take one holiday celebration at a time. Sarah Hale (you can read about her) fought to protect the sanctity of Thanksgiving. She believed that people had gotten away from the real meaning. She knew the real deal. Now you do, too.

Happy Thanksgiving!
