It is difficult to believe that Thanksgiving is tomorrow. Some of my fondest holiday memories are of Thanksgiving. It was my mother’s favorite holiday. She used to get very upset that Black Friday and Christmas would overshadow the meaning of Thanksgiving.
As much as we all look forward to our individual beliefs and celebrations of Christmas time, I encourage you all to first have a happy Thanksgiving. Take some time to reflect on what you have to be thankful for and celebrate the day with your loved ones.
I would like to remind the Montgomery community to contact me with any events you would like posted in this column. I am sure that the upcoming holiday season will bring about many events in our area. I can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
