I hope you have a lovely joyous Thanksgiving with family and
friends.  Our Canadian Thanksgiving happened in October and it was
amazing.  The youngest person at the delicious dinner was
two months old and taking it all in!

I love the idea of a celebration based on gratitude.  In Canada
it's about the harvest, and I love the day because it's about
food, getting together and being happy, and everyone can
participate.  It isn't a religious holiday -- it is wide open.

I am not keen on the major sales push now tacked on to
Thanksgiving both here and in the U.S. "Black Friday" seems
almost criminal to me with our oceans filling up with plastic and
now not being the right time at all for us to need, More, more,

But back to a happy celebration.  Wishing you and your
family and friends a joyous holiday weekend.

Happy Thanksgiving
