Thanksgiving Miscellanies

Every year the President of the United States issues a Thanksgiving Day proclamation. The 2007 proclamation is available here.

In related news, I do not know what "makes" Thanksgiving for you, but two things (besides food and family/friends) do it for me. The first is the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, which I always enjoy watching (it comes on in five minutes!). The other is watching footage of American troops celebrating Thanksgiving overseas and sending greetings to loved ones back home. I cannot imagine what it is like to be in their position, and I truly appreciate the sacrifice they are making–even on Thanksgiving–to serve their country.

I hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving.
