It’s that time of year again when it is on everyone’s mind. Every time we turn on the TV or walk into the grocery store. Even just driving down the road, there are reminders everywhere. Christmas is just around the corner and the high shopping season is upon us.

What ever happened to Thanksgiving?

I have phrases from “Fiddler on the Roof” running through my head as I write this. It happens whenever I think about the traditions of my life, of American life, or of my characters’ lives. “Tradition” is the answer we give when we’ve forgotten why we do something. Why do we eat turkey for Thanksgiving? Tradition. Why do we bring a tree into the house and cover it with baubles? Tradition. It’s more than that though.
