Where has Thanksgiving gone?

Are you seeing the disappearance of Thanksgiving like I am? Suddenly we are going from Halloween to Christmas. Thanksgiving is being forgotten. If you go out to the store, all you see after Halloween is Christmas items and decorations. Where Christmas lights went up after Thanksgiving, now they are going up before.

I love Thanksgiving and what it stands for. It is a time for us to pause and be thankful for all that we have. I like going around the table at Thanksgiving and asking everyone what they are most thankful for during the past year. I love the idea of sharing a family meal with none of the present and hectic pace Christmas can be.
