Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! A solid tradition if there ever was one. In Canada this weekend marks the real end of summer. The first part of fall is often called ‘Indian Summer’ (if you can still use that term?) and it is through the sharing of the thanksgiving turkey that we come together to remember the gifts we have received and to acknowledge that the months ahead will bring colder and harsher weather.
Traditions are central to who we are as a people, as members of a group and for those of us lucky enough we are a party to family traditions. The first two minutes of the clip below are of Lucy and Charlie Brown living out one of the true traditions from a simpler time.
Lucy leaves us with something to think about when she instructs her friend: “Isn’t it peculiar Charlie Brown how some traditions just seem to fad away.”
