As you know, we are a family that loves our traditions. For the last twenty-five or so years, we have watched Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987) every Thanksgiving.
We will happily watch it this year.
We will watch (some of) the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade and probably Miracle on 34th Street (1947) at some point over the weekend.
We might watch The Wizard of Oz (1939) which, when I was growing up, was always shown on television the night of Thanksgiving.
We are not a family that brings out the musical instruments when everyone is gathered. (Sadly, we can’t do that.) And we don’t play games. We tend to open up the DVD cabinet. À chacun son goût.
We will also celebrate the boy’s birthday this weekend and marvel at how that little tyke grew up into a fine young man.
Ah, sunrise, sunset!
