>Christmas is Coming, Right? But Let’s Not Forget Thanksgiving

> In the mad rush to the Christmas season, Thanksgiving often gets the bum’s rush. It’s really one of my favorite holidays, because:

1. You’ve gotta love the God-sanctioned gluttony that is Thanksgiving–when else are Christians allowed to over eat, and God’s totally ok with it?

2. Who doesn’t love the sanctified materialism that is “Black” Friday? Never mind we’ll spend all year paying it off.

3. Among Thanksgiving prayers are the perpetual favorite: “Forgive us, O, Lord, for this sin which we are about to commit.” Or perhaps we’ve forgotten to pray over the blessed bird? Got that covered, too: “Bless the Lord, o my soul, and all that is within me.”

4. Black Friday prayers are even more fun: “Please, O God, let me beat the heathens to the best parking spots, best deals, best whatever because, well, I’m Your child afterall, and those pagans don’t deserve Your shopping mercies.”

Something like that anyway. Share some of your Thanksgiving traditions in the comments, please.
