Today is the official “busiest travel day of the year”. So wherever you may be heading for the holidays this weekend, I urge you to hurry up and beat the traffic.
Like our Pilgrim forebears, who polished the buckles on their hats, and shoes, and invited Squanto and the tribe over to watch football and play Euchre, this is a holiday meant to be spent with family and friends. So as we celebrate this most familial, and least commercial holiday on our calendar, it’s a good time to pause and reflect on the reasons we have to give thanks.
Is that all you could come up with?
Jeez, what an ingrate.
Whatever your holiday traditions may be, I hope that you keep in the spirit of the season, and indulge them to wretched excess. Make Squanto proud.
