pumpkinsturkeyToday is a day when people in the U.S. and the Eurozone are traveling to celebrate Thanksgiving. It is a United States holiday, but people who have lived in the U.S. continue to enjoy it in Europe and several countries. It is one of the worst days of the year for traveling in the U.S. as the colleges finish for a four day break, businesses quit early, and people who cannot drive fly to spend the day with family and friends. Traveling can be enjoyable or miserable depending upon the weather, traffic and general difficulties individuals encounter. If anyone is sitting in traffic for an inordinate period of time, their dispositions turn from sunny to unpleasant. If the weather fails to cooperate, often people are stranded in airports and sometimes if caught in a snow storm. Its a day when there should be kindness towards one another and yet it is not always the case. For the most part, everyone is anticipating a wonderful day and they start out happy. Its when the rude and nasty people decide if they aren’t having a good day, no one else should and that’s when things go downhill. In the United States, many families watch football all day except taking a break to actually eat the Thanksgiving dinner. When I lived in Europe, my son and I celebrated Thanksgiving and invited all of our friends. It became a tradition and they would all try to find a way to have the day off to enjoy the food. Of course, there was no football, so it was simply a celebration of good food and good friends.  It was necessary for Miss Patty to do a fair amount of traveling today to assist a family member.  She said that for the most part, everyone was pleasant.  When I was doing my radio show, I did write a Thanksgiving story.  It was exciting with adventure.  In the end, everyone was thankful to be together.  I hope everyone who did traveling had a safe journey and will have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
