Thanks, But No Thanks!

Hard to believe Thanksgiving is right around the corner.  The kids are coming home from college. Aunt Sally and Uncle Bob, your favorite relatives, are flying in from Wisconsin. You can’t wait to see cousin Mona’s new baby girl. OK, that’s the good news.  Tell us your biggest pet peeve at Thanksgiving, so we know you’re only human!

I don’t have a peeve. I love THANKSGIVING, love the cooking, having family and friends, the chattering of everyone talking. The children laughing. I don’t even mind cleaning up the mess.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It is about the bounty of earth and family. My pet peeve is that marketing has done its best to turn it into a crazy sales binge fiasco.
