Thanksgiving 2009 is now long gone. It was a glorious holiday filled with family, friends, good food, bad sports results (for Giants and Knicks fans), and strange Tiger Woods headlines.
Although Thanksgiving is a relatively new holiday it seems to be widely accepted as one of the best American days of celebration. There is no pressure associated with gift-giving or religious ritualism. Most people receive two days of rest. And borderline gluttony is widely celebrated.
I am most thankful for the fundamental joys of my life: my health, my family, my friends. I am also thankful for my voice, my perspective, and my zeal.
