Thanksgiving is a great holiday. It is X-Mas without the bullshit and the annoying hustle and bustle. There is football on TV and turkey in the oven. Stuffing and mashed potatoes and gravy rule. My annual tradition is to head up to my grandparents house and hang out with family all day long. We eat, chill out, play card games and watch the games on TV.

Sure this holiday centers around the pilgrims eating with the Native Americans before they took their land. Yet its about togetherness and getting together for at least one day and enjoying a dead bird that is really tasty. This year I will hope the Packers somehow win and that the pumpkin pie tastes as good as it always does. I love this time of year, before winter sets in.
