Thanksgiving is still one of my favorite holidays, but I have no one to enjoy my good cooking on Thanksgiving Day*, but me. I will have to develop some age-appropriate ways to celebrate and give thanks for the bounty of life. For example, I used to bake a mincemeat pie, an apple pie, and a pumpkin pie for dessert so that everyone had their favorite kind of pie. This year to celebrate Thanksgiving I bedazzled a pumpkin in this artwork. Pretty. For my meal I cooked half a duck in orange sauce, a delicious novelty from Aldi.

* "Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated on various dates in Canada, the United States, some of the Caribbean islands, and Liberia. It began as a day of giving thanks and sacrifice for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. Similarly named festival holidays occur in Germany and Japan. Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States, and around the same part of the year in other places. Although Thanksgiving has historical roots in religious and cultural traditions, it has long been celebrated as a secular holiday as well."
