Another dot in the blogosphere?


Posted on: November 27, 2015

Thanksgiving falls on the last Thursday of November every year in the USA. The rest of the world might know it exists only because of the spread of Black Friday and Cyber Monday for online deals.

I marked my last Thanksgiving just over 10 years ago when I was still living there thanks to the generosity of a host family.

I will not forget the food, the kinship, and the poring over of newspaper ads for good deals. I will definitely not forget standing in line the next day in the freezing cold.

Kid President reminds us of other things to be thankful for. We do not need Thanksgiving to remember these things or to thank someone for providing them. We might need to be reminded that being thankful is not a commercial holiday, but a basic human nicety.
