The US Thanksgiving holiday will be celebrated this year with retailers opening on Thanksgiving and people leaving their homes to shop instead of sharing their day with loved ones.
Thanksgiving I still believe, is about giving, not getting.
Thanksgiving used to be a holiday where several generations of family and friends would be seated around a large dinner table listening as Grandfather said grace, then watching as Dad carved the turkey and Mom brought out the pies.
The kids were sitting quietly at a separate table. It is an image captured in a Norman Rockwell painting.
It is far removed from reality for many today.
