... for being part of a Thanksgiving feast tomorrow.
Years ago (1981) Sam and I were in missionary language school in south Brazil. The school hosted a Thanksgiving meal in which we all brought food. It was so fun. Many of us had homesickness, particularly around holidays, so that was super special.
Then we heard that there was a group of folks back in the States that didn't like that we were feasting, and taking the day off as a holiday. Brazil didn't celebrate Thanksgiving in November, so we shouldn't either.
Needless to say, that message made us sick.
No, we decided. It was NOT futile. It was not for nothing that we celebrated our homeland's holiday. It was a morale booster ... and it was NEEDED.
So the next year... and the next... we celebrated Thanksgiving... and Christmas... and birthdays, etc.... with ZEAL.
Let's ALL celebrate.
Oh, here's another 'silly'...
