October 30, 2012
November is the time of year when we gather with people we love to Give Thanks...simply because someone, way back when, decided to have a feast of thanks. They were thanking the people who helped them survive, and thanking their spiritual leader for providing for them through a long and arduous journey to a new world, and new life.
