I can safely say that besides Christmas, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, partly because I love to eat, but mainly because of what this holiday means to me. The thankfulness of all that has been bestowed upon me. To me, the very word, Thanksgiving, evokes images of family, in which I have been richly blessed. It also brings to mind roasted turkey, an assortment of pies, a change in the weather, and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. And let's not forget about the Black Friday shopping extravaganza.
The parade is always commencing on the tv while we create our delectables and it helps keep the kiddos occupied. Most of the men folk in my family are hunters and spend the morning hours out in the woods.
