Thank you , Murray Edelman , for your truly profound post.
I agree with everything you said. If we are going to celebrate a holiday we need to know exactly what we’re doing. Everything we do nowadays seems to be fake. But underneath all of that are very profound messages if only we would dig down to find them.
Thanks for the belly laugh, Joe Grant . I can’t wait to tell that one.
This article freaks me out because just this morning I cleaned my toilet. I had no idea I was commemorating a holiday. I just thought it was the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Now I realize that I am in sync with the greeting card zeitgeist. That’s scary.
