This is the beginning of the seasons that we should look over at our neighbors and wish them well. So many families this year will go without food, shelter, shoes and clothes, and family members. We all should be thankful this year that we'll be able to have our families with us this Thanksgiving and Christmas, and plenty on the table. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
BE THANKFUL

Happy Thanksgiving to you Charlie.It's sad that our country has turned the day into football games and shopping.We never hear any thanks and prayers of thanks to our Creator on Thanksgiving anymore.We hear people saying thanks but never to whom.And so our country is reaping what it sows.Shopping for cheap Chinese made junk and worshipping sports teams.Nothing wrong with having sports.But a day that was set aside to give thanks to the Almighty should be observed that way.

I agree. It seems the holidays aren't celebrated the way they use to, where families would gather for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and love one another. I think what went wrong, is where these holidays have become too commercialized, as some call it, "It's all about the money", and lost the peace that goes with Thanksgiving and Christmas. I know one thing, it seems about around October, the big stores start putting out displays for Christmas, and Halloween hadn't even come around yet, so I think it's got too commercialized. When I was growing up, Thanksgiving was the time where families got together and our mothers and grandmothers cooked for two days, and sometimes started cooking a week before the holidays. Christmas on the other hand, it was a time of peace, and giving, but today, too many people fight and argue among them selves.
Peace

My granmother didn't think people should exchange gifts at Christmas. Although, my family does give and receive gifts at Christmas, I can see my grandmother's point,now. She thought it took away from the true meaning of Christmas. I miss her, dearly...She loved us all so much. I am thankful she was my grandma.

I know what you mean. I lost both grandparents on both sides, my mother in 1999, our oldest daughter in 2007, and my father in October of this year, and I miss them dearly. My wife lost both of her parents in 1999. We tend to miss the whole point of Christmas, it's really about Jesus Christ, and not about the gifts.
