Why not thanksgiving?


I always breathe a sigh of relief when the morose brooding of Halloween is over and we turn our eyes toward the promise of Christmas, shaking off the shadows and opening our windows to the light.

Even among those who celebrate simply for “fun” and refrain from the more lurid costumes, there is a shadow in the spirit about the event. It’s like everyone is focusing on the negative. You can sense it in the air.

Happily, the former craze for Halloween seems to be dying out here with less and less in the shops etc. Every year I think the same thing: If we had to choose an American event to import why not Thanksgiving!
