H is for Holidays

I love holidays - not the commercialism of them, but the idea of taking a day to commemorate something - anything. I like Thanksgiving because it's just food and family: no gifts, no decorating (or at least minimal). Of course, Thanksgiving will never be like it was when I was a child, when it was my grandmother cooking, and everyone came to our house. We always had family of course, and then whatever "strays" the family picked up along the way. My favorite guest was always "Grandma Ruby," who wasn't related to us at all, but always came over for Thanksgiving. She had great stories, and she had a fur wrap which she would let my sister and me "pet" all day.
