Do you feel that Thanksgiving is just an excuse for our already bloated country to stuff our expanding bellies even more? And then it's the start of the commercialization of Christmas. The true meaning of it all seems lost.

IDK about yours, but my family actually eats less on a holiday like today than they do on a normal day (mostly because we only eat twice because of when we eat). Our portions are no different than for a regular meal. I wouldn't assume that most people are glutons on Thanksgiving. It's usually a large group of people (usually family or close friends) that have different tastes, thus a larger variation of dishes. Then again, I am not one that tries to find the bad in things before I look for the good. JMO.

For me thanksgiving has great ideals behind it, but really it's just a huge meal of badly cooked food with people I would rather not spend the day with. I am thankful everyday for my husband and our daughters and so many other things. I guess I can also be thankful that since my MIL is such a bad cook that it's not a day of gluttony for me!
