As happy as we all are, I think the date of Thanksgiving should be changed to October, and make it the same date as the Canadian Thanksgiving, closer to the harvest. By November, the harvest is over and most of the farm markets are closed for the winter. The colored leaves are now gone and winter has set in. In the northern hemisphere we need to have all the festive lights out now, to chase away the overcast, dark days.
Since the church members provided a huge Thanksgiving meal on the last Lord's Day, today I am having a simple Thanksgiving Afternoon Tea.
