Yes, it is that time of year again where friends and family gather together to enjoy a large feast. It is a time to give thanks and spend time with family.  Everyone has their traditions and the meal to prepare and everyone will be gathered around a beautiful table and enjoy conversations. When my mom was alive we celebrated everything. After she passed it was nothing not even a stocking was hung. It was sad. My Dad did not like holidays.  Across the street was grand central family gathered at M’s house and he would say do not bother her.  How are your holidays what did you do? How do you celebrate what are your traditions? All I could do was sit in my room and write stories. That is what I did. I wish I still had them. I remember one of them was called the Bus Trip Tale.  Now that I am a parent I am make sure we enjoy the holidays. I hope you enjoy yours. I know one thing it is no fun sitting in your room alone. Now onto the next life lesson.
