I LOVE Thanksgiving. It has always been my favorite holiday. As a child, I looked forward to gathering with all my cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents at my Aunt Jenny’s and Uncle Wayne’s home. We went around the table, each sharing what we were most thankful for. Most often, it included family, one another. After a big meal, we would go outside for a highly competitive game of football, come inside for warmth and desert, and more competition around a board game or charades. Driving the two hours home from Jenny’s, what I looked forward to most were the Christmas street lights of St Peter, Minnesota, the official sign that Christmas was near.
The long Thanksgiving weekend has always been full of family activities: sledding, skating, more board games, and more eating, yes, even as an adult. I have to admit, I have never been a big Black Friday mall shopper, even though I hail from the land of 10,000 lakes and the Mall of America. Bill and I have wonderful memories travelling to Minnesota or Buffalo, New York with our kids to spend time with our families. It never involved hitting the stores. It was ALL about family.
I know, today Black Friday shopping doesn’t necessarily mean physically abandoning the family before the last of the Thanksgiving dishes are placed into the dishwasher. But it does temp us to retreat to our devices rather than snuggling around the TV for the umpteenth viewing of Miracle on 34th Street.
