Here in the US, Thanksgiving is a special holiday. It is a holiday that embraces all religions, races, and political affiliations. It is a holiday that brings family and friends together no matter what their imagined grievances be. It is the one holiday where all of America shares in an identical sacrament composed of turkey, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie. It is the one holiday where we forget about what we want and give thanks for what we have. So, all of you here in the US, count your blessings and give thanks for what you have and the people in your life and, please, be thankful for the dog that shares your home. Lest we offend our non US readers, you are all invited to participate. This is a holiday that will fit in any home.
