Thanksgiving's in the air

On TV, in the paper, in magazines, in stores - everyone's talking about their Thanksgiving preparations. It's a little odd since I don't like turkey or pumpkin pie, but I'm a little bummed to be missing out on the festivities. We're off to the motherland, which is Canada and where they've already celebrated Thanksgiving back in early October (same date as Columbus Day in the US). The Canadian version is nowhere near as big a deal as it is here. I've come to appreciate the rigamarole around this holiday, though I still don't get the appeal of Black Friday shopping starting at 4am for a number of stores (midnight at the Wrentham outlets south of Boston).

In any case, Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
