Say what you will about Christmas, this is far and away my favourite holiday of the year. The rules are the same — get together with family, share a big meal, converse, catch up, and generally just have a good time. The only difference between Thanksgiving and Christmas is that at Thanksgiving, we don’t get involved in finding that perfect gift or rushing out to grab something last minute for the person who unexpectedly bought a gift for you. Christmas could take a lesson from Thanksgiving about what a family holiday should really be about. Enjoy those turkey sandwiches this week.
