Thanksgiving is the best holiday — it really is. It’s not centered on gifts (so no headache or hassle trying to come up with the perfect gift for the in-laws, or making sure you don’t give them the same thing two years in a row, or getting your kids the gifts they want); it’s not just about candy (like Easter or Halloween or Valentines Day), although there is plenty to eat. It’s about taking a day off from the normal course of life to give thanks to God for the blessings He’s given. And they are numerous. We live in the best country on earth; and even if you don’t live in the United States, we live in one of the best, if not the best, times in life when quality of life, length of life, medical advancements, etc., are unparalleled. The richest king who ever lived never had toilet paper, air conditioning, cell phones, a car, the internet, or anything else we pretty much take for granted. And we should be thankful.
