Every year it seems that the Christmas season begins earlier and earlier. Although I am a huge fan of Christmas, I think it’s important to make sure we don’t overlook the importance of Thanksgiving. Just as Christmas has been assigned Santa Claus and Easter the Easter Bunny, Thanksgiving has been assigned the anonymous Turkey, often holding a sign that says “eat beef.” I, for one, would like my son to know that Thanksgiving is more than eating Turkey and decorating for Christmas. As a result, I’ve designed a “Thanksgiving Checklist” of things that we can all do do help keep our minds in the right perspective as we celebrate Thanksgiving. Print it out and hang it up where you can see it. Try and do a few of the items, or all of them. Let’s not rush through Thanksgiving as a means to get to Christmas, but truly reflect on the holiday and what it means to us personally.
