" After all, it's a fairly "minor" holiday now, getting absolutely no time in the stores and without any real decorations."^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^Sometimes I think NYC is in a different universe.Merchandizing does not make a holiday - although it can feed offa holiday.One of the routine office events at every company I have ever worked for was the Thanksgiving "bring in a covered dish" day -where the company would spring for a ham or turkey plussome fixings and everyone would bring in something tonibble upon.One of the routine peak travel times? - Thanksgiving.Pumpkin pie? Turkey?Cornucopias?Ceramic pilgrims?Ceramic indians? Football? - possibly the only NFL games I bother to watch are overthe Thanksgiving holiday.Yes, the stores simultaneously sell stuff for all theholidays (I think I could find an Easter Bunny in someof the drug store chains today if I looked hard enough) -but Thanksgiving was, is, and shall be.Howie52
