I'm jealous of people who have a Thanks Giving. It always looks like such a special holiday in movies / television programmes. And a nice little milestone to pass along the way to knowing Chrismas is really on its way
I loved that Thanks Giving episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, where Buffy tries to cook her first Thanks Giving meal by herself with her friends. Pangs, it was called. It was hilarious!
For us, Thanksgiving is a special holiday, but it also represents the "official" beginning of the Christmas season. That is always the night we turn on our outdoor Christmas lights for the first time! We always decorate the house and put up the tree on the day after Thanksgiving.
