I believe Thanksgiving gets TONS of respect!

And you know, it gets stronger every year. 

I really do believe Thanksgiving is in the midst of a renaissance.

I love Thanksgiving!  The only shopping is for food, not trying to figure out what gifts to purchase for family and friends.  

 

The town where I grew up was busy on Thanksgiving.  Santa came to town in the morning, escorted by the high school band.  In the afternoon the h s football team played the team from the neighboring town.  It was always a packed house because the current residents and people who had moved away came back to visit and attend the game.   I was in the band, so my day was very busy and exciting!  Dinner was before the game with leftovers later.  This was in PA, so it was cold!  Somehow, that was not a problem.  We were tough!

Thanksgiving in America is HUGE in it's own right. I grew up in Canada where Thanksgiving is celebrated in October (when it's Columbus Day here) and even though there's no association with Christmas,  given the greater span between the two dates, it's STILL not as big a deal up there as it is down here!
