It was my intention to write a long and crabby post about how Thanksgiving is being overwhelmed by the commercialization of Christmas, which begins before Halloween, and that odious consumer orgy known as Black Friday. But I will spare you all that. Old men complaining about change is nothing new, and nobody wants to hear it.
So let me just wish you a peaceful and enjoyable time with family and friends.
I have written about Thanksgiving when I was in a better frame of mind, and you might enjoy these stories from the past.
