Thanksgiving Tree

So, we celebrate Thanksgiving in September. That’s when the Fall equinox (first day of Fall) is and traditionally the time when most crops are harvested. True we don’t really grow a lot of the plants we harvest from, but you get the idea.

Historically, this is most likely the time of year when the “pilgrims” actually held their first thanksgiving as well. Being agriculturalists, it wouldn’t have made sense for them to have waited until November, especially since they lived in Massachusetts.

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by, nor can I believe all the things we’ve seen and done either! It’s still pretty hot (and humid!) here in central Texas but already I’m feeling like the year is almost over. We set out this year with so much to look forward to and now that so much of it is over, it feels like we’ve been in a whirlwind! So much of it seems to blur together and sorting out the memories is going to take some reflection.

But I’m looking forward to that too.
