Thanksgiving is arguably the best of America's national holidays. We get together with family, it's inclusive of all beliefs, it centers on food and we all give thanks. It's also been the holiday most able to resist irritating commercialism. Here are some ways to maximize the meaningfulness of Thanksgiving, as well as ideas for starting new annual traditions.
One new tradition could be making food for your friends' Thanksgiving meals. Send over a pan of brownies or a bowl of your famous cranberry sauce. Let friends who are having their own family get-togethers know that you're thinking of them.
