Spending this Thanksgiving at my grandparents’ place with my immediate family. I’ve actually been here for about a week. Visits out here are always enjoyable for me, although these days I end up helping them with chores they wouldn’t be able to complete on their own. When I was younger we visited almost every summer so I always remember going out to the beach, or playing in their yard, or visiting various places they’d take us.
Haven’t ever been here over Thanksgiving though, so I’m glad I’ve finally gotten the chance. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because I feel like it is the only one that really focuses on spending time with family. Yes, I get annoyed that the run-up to Christmas that happens during this time, but I think it may actually be a blessing that things work that way because Christmas pulls most of the commercialism so Thanksgiving is left alone.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who celebrates it, and happy holidays to those who don’t.
