Today we recognize the abundance afforded us. Of course, many of us have still not recovered from the Great Recession (yeah, like the whole Middle Class). But, being the optimistic people we are, we are still bound and determined to celebrate Thanksgiving. Many of us are also bound and determined to wait on line for interminable duration just to score that one sale item.
Today is Thanksgiving. A holiday to remind us that our harvest has sustained us. Analogous to the holiday of Sukot, which was closer in time to the secular Thanksgiving before the date was moved. (It IS celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada, which is mighty close to the actual date of Sukot.)
