The holiday season, as it's evolved, is often a stressful time of year. That's not a news flash to anyone. Expectations for perfect family gatherings, getting the perfect gift, making the perfect memory, even being on the perfect behavior — are all hard to reach.
But Thanksgiving is different.
No presents to buy. No lofty expectations. No real pressure.
Well no pressure except for the cook (thanks Mom and my sister) or the dude grilling the turkey (my brother-in-law).
At it's best, it's family around the table to share a meal.
