Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, because it focuses on being thankful for two important things: food and family. Both are very important in my life. I love to cook, and food is both a touchstone and cause for celebration to me. Food, especially traditional dishes like the ones at Thanksgiving, is a great way to share our heritage and enjoy deliciousness with others. Family, whether the traditional nuclear one or whatever combination of loved ones we have, is what makes life most enjoyable. Combining the two for a whole day in my own home is a highlight of the year for me.
However you celebrate Thanksgiving, may your day be full of joy, love, peace, and happiness.
