I completely concur with your sentiments about Thanksgiving as well as
Regarding 26 November as a day of thanksgiving, it was instituted by George
Washington back in 1789. It’s worth googling and reading his letter of that
But why not use a moment every day to reflect on what thanksgivings we can
offer to family and friends, to community and institutions, to nature and
creation in it’s immensity … and to our Creator.
Arthur, .. and everyone else … thanks for your many inputs on this list
over the years.
