The Overeating Holiday

I have just finished my over night rising homemade cinnamon rolls that we will enjoy for breakfast tomorrow so my prep is complete.

Tomorrow will be a day of consciously remembering all we have to be grateful for in our lives: family, friends, health, economic resources, pets, good memories, etc.  The list is endless and often overlooked in the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

As some of you know, when the girls were in highschool we hosted an exchange student from Thailand.  Quite often American customs, holidays, expressions and more were confusing for her to understand.  She had only been with us a few months when Thanksgiving came around and, as is a family custom going back generations, the table was literally groaning with all the food we put out for the great meal.

Afterwards she did say that she found it interesting that Americans have a holiday built around overeating. :)

So let's make sure we all do our part to celebrate in the traditional American style.  Oh, and you might want to check out where the antacids are.  Just saying.
