Thanksgiving / by Christina Rosalie

Hi. Today I am writing. All week I've been writing. Hence the absence here.... which makes me sad/happy, as usual. I am stopping in though to say: thank you, thank you. What you give to me with your comments, your friendships here, your encouragement is something I cherish.

Today I am wondering (as I prepare for a kind of anticlimactic day tomorrow, now that both sets of friends who were coming to dinner have canceled due to the flu...) how do you celebrate Thanksgiving? Is it a holiday that you love? What makes it special? What ritual or tradition do you have that doesn't, maybe, entirely, focus on an enormous meal? I'm so looking forward to reading your replies as I feel like I really want to change this holiday up around here. I'm hoping for inspiration.
