I love this time of year. I love the time that I get to spend at home with my family. From Thanksgiving on, the holiday season is filled with tradition for my family. Thanksgiving morning, we always watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Actually, it's more like Allison and I watch and mom and dad complain about how the parade is just a big show now. Mom likes to watch it for the marching bands and to see Santa. Dad watches it because he's watched it every Thanksgiving since he was a kid. I like it all- the balloons, the bands, the performers, the floats, and of course Santa. I'm pretty sure Allison is the same way.
One Thanksgiving tradition I miss is the one where they always used to show Home Alone on TV on Thanksgiving night. I liked watching the Star Wars and James Bond movie marathons that spanned the whole weekend too.
But enough about tradition. The whole reason I started to blog today was wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, and to remind everyone not to forget why we celebrate. Don't forget that today is a day to think about all of the blessings we've been given. Today is a day to give thanks to God and to be grateful alongside our families.
Don't eat too much turkey. Happy Thanksgiving!!
