It’s Thanksgiving (and for some us, also Hanukkah, in a once in 70,000 year phenomenon!), and it’s time to express our gratitude. It’s amazing that we have a holiday devoted to giving thanks, and it is too bad it has devolved into a holiday for shopping and watching football (but I digress). Hanukkah is a holiday that celebrates redemption and miracles, and it is quite lovely that it coincides with Thanksgiving this year.
In honor of Thanksgiving, and of Hanukkah, I’d like to thank you, my readers on the blog. I am truly grateful that you take a couple of minutes out of your day to read my musings. For those of you who have taken the time to comment and discuss, thank you too! Great comments are very rewarding.
I would also like to thank my Twitter friends. Over the years, I’ve been able to build relationships with several people on Twitter (too many people to mention, but you know who you are right?). These relationships have led to learning, discussion and camaraderie, and I am truly grateful for that.
So, Happy Thanksgiving to all and Happy Hanukkah to those celebrate it!
