Thanskgiving Greetings! (A day early. . .)
We'll call this the "Random Becky Fact of the Day!"
Did you know. . . that I had two Thanksgivings before my first birthday?
Weird, huh? It's true. I was born on a Wednesday, Thanksgiving Eve, 1991. The next year, 1992, was a Leap Year. Therefore, my first birthday was on a Friday. So I celebrated Thanksgiving the day after I was born, and the day before I turned one. I wonder if there is any sort of certificate or medal awarded to people that go through this kind of weird experience. Because let me tell you, it confused me so much when it happened.
Moving on, I want to wish you all a very joyful Thanksgiving this year. It is most definitely my favorite holiday. One, because it means I get to spend time cooking, one of my favorite things to do. Two, because it brings the whole family together. And three, because of the way it focuses on looking beyond yourself. I challenge you to find something to do this Thanksgiving that gives someone else a reason to be thankful.
Okay, a survey I shall post. Actually, it is just a question that requires an answer. Don't fail me. .
"What is the thing you are most thankful for this year?"
Comment on this post and let me know! Be creative and honest. . . I'll tell you mine sometime next week, so you can wait expectantly for that. :)
Have a glorious Thanksgiving!
