November is an amazing month that gets too little attention.
Thanksgiving has largely been overshadowed by Christmas in more recent years, and in some ways, it's understandable. Christmas involves a number of aspects, both religious and secular, as does Halloween.
But Thanksgiving is a sort of glorified meal- and of course, we can be thankful any day, right?
Personally, I tend to have pretty great Halloweens and Thanksgivings. Christmas is...a bumpier ride for me, for several reasons that I won't bore the reader with.
I do with Thanksgiving came with its own rituals- lighting of candles or some such thing. Alas! Perhaps one day someone will start such a trend.
