Warm, spicy chai and a pumpkin muffin with maple cream cheese. I love Fall! I love the leaves and the rainy weather. I LOVE Thanksgiving! A holiday to give thanks to God for all that He has done for us. And we celebrate with a feast! Fantastic! What is happening to Thanksgiving? People in my neighborhood have been putting up Christmas lights for the last couple of weeks. Down came the spiders and Jack-o-lanterns and up went the lights and the blow-up Santa. What about Thanksgiving? What about Fall? I would guess that Americans don’t really like Thanksgiving. We like food, but not if we have to make it. And being grateful for anything is a foreign concept. I am an American, I am entitled to everything, I don’t have to thank anyone, I don’t have to work for anything…(I wasn’t planning on a rant about the problems with this country, just Christmas lights in November.) Do you know why we celebrate Thanksgiving? Because our pious forefathers celebrated Christmas as a religious holiday. No trees or lights or presents and definitely no drinking and feasting. That is what Thanksgiving is for. I love Christmas, but I don’t want to celebrate it for 2 months! What is special about that? So, I will celebrate Fall and Thanksgiving! We will have turkey, potatoes, cranberries, white wine, apple cider, and chai and pumpkin everything! Hooray for Fall!
