" 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 off
a 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 plus
some fixings and everyone would bring in something to
nibble upon.
One of the routine peak travel times? - Thanksgiving.
Pumpkin pie?
Ceramic pilgrims?
Ceramic indians?
Football? - possibly the only NFL games I bother to watch are over
the Thanksgiving holiday.

Yes, the stores simultaneously sell stuff for all the
holidays (I think I could find an Easter Bunny in some
of the drug store chains today if I looked hard enough) -
but Thanksgiving was, is, and shall be.
