I want to skip the holiday this week. That would be selfish. Americans love their USA holidays. It’s so much stress and does not fit into my focused simple life plan.
My children don’t like traditional Thanksgiving food. Often we serve alternative meals. This year we are, for the first time, going to a restaurant for a thanksgiving dinner. I can feel my grandmothers’ rebukes from across the veil because I choose not to be a slave to the stove.
Traditions are peer pressure from the dead and I am not succumbing to their influence this time.
