The Quintessential Holiday
Thanksgiving is a quintessential holiday. Out of all the holidays this one still retains a bit of holiday innocence and tranquility. It's a family day. A day set aside for something simple and productive. To be grateful.
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
Granted, with the push for Black Friday specials and the greedy Christmas season on the backdoor, it still seems a bit tainted in many regards, but Thanksgiving still holds a bit of cherished innocence.
That does not mean it is not stressful to get a home ready for a large meal and guests! Quite the contrary! It can be a hassle beyond many mommas or homemakers mind capacity.
