  •  Hi, Something, so good to see you and thanks for (7+ / 0-)

    this diary!  You'd better believe I won't shop Thanksgiving Day--to me that day is practically sacred.  It's my favorite holiday in the sense that its focus is food, family, and friends--just a big feast where we give thanks for our blessings. No cards to write, no presents to wrap, no shopping apart from the food--I love Thanksgiving!  And it's so American.

    As a matter of fact, we stopped buying presents for each other years ago--now we buy presents only for the two babies in the family.  I give my family "token" gifts (a calendar of English scenes for my British-born hubby, for example) and the rest of the gift money goes to the Heifer Foundation.
