Thanksgiving in recent years seems to have become Christmas-lite in my opinion .. not that it is a bad thing. They are really starting to become one in the same. You get dressed up, go to church (if you observe), and spend the rest of the day with the Family. Really, you even eat the same types of food.
I look forward to parking myself on the couch, watching the Macy's Parade, eating, watching the Detroit Lions lose, eating some more.
Its always a good time.
"I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." ~Charles Dickens
