And that's something that doesn't happen all that often. The holidays I celebrate the rest of the time tend to be Jewish and many are even unknown to the general public, while I pretty much ignore much of the secular calendar - I don't do Halloween or St. Valentine's Day, for example. I do celebrate the Fourth, of course, and I have no problems celebrating the secular New Year. We tend to do it quietly, whether it's with friends or by ourselves, but we do celebrate it.
But only Thanksgiving has customs, and I'm glad to observe most of them - the ritual foods, the ritual arguments
Even if I'm currently scared that everything will be a disaster this Thursday.
