Happy Thanksgiving!

Poor Thanksgiving so easily gets overshadowed by Christmas displays that pop up in October and Black Friday that creeps into Thursday. Watching the Detroit Lions lose and eating turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie while listening to your crazy uncle spout conspiracy theories just doesn't have as much commercial appeal. Still, that lack of commercialization keeps Thanksgiving simple - a time to sit down and appreciate what you have, even if it's that crazy uncle. Enjoy your turkey (or tofurky, I guess) and tomorrow we'll drop into the crass commercialization of Black Friday.
