I solemnly observe the ritualized playing of Alice's Restaurant (Arlo Guthrie) and Mayflower (Jon and Vangelis).
This is the first year in ages that my extended family won't be coming here (I didn't have to clean and I won't have to cook!!!
). We're all driving to my youngest sister's place, about 2½ hours from here. The weather (in the morning, at least, when we'll be driving) will be potentially bad, and we're going up the NY Thruway, which is never
a pleasant drive -- but hey, it's family!
After that I stay off the roads until Monday.
And I don't know if it has been clarified yet -- I skimmed -- but I think the US Thanksgiving is the Thursday of the last full week in November.
