My most favorite holiday is approaching - Thanksgiving!
As a child, I didn't care much for it. Stuck between Halloween and Christmas, Thanksgiving seemed a total bore! I'd spend the morning reading through the comic section of the newspaper while my parents pored over Black Friday ads, and I'd leaf through the Sears catalog while watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
As an adult, Thanksgiving seems perfect to me! A day for counting one's blessings, eating delicious food (if one is so fortunate) and being with loved ones. Compared to the hustle and bustle of Christmas, Thanksgiving's pace is relaxed and tranquil. No gifts to buy (well maybe just a few for my son *wink*), not much by way of decorating (although I do have a few things to show you), and not much prep other than a fantastic home-cooked feast!
Are you busy prepping at your house? Are you doing the cooking this year or going over to a family member's house? What do you do to celebrate and prepare?
