Thanksgiving Survey


Here is the Common Household Pre-Thanksgiving survey.  It’s unscientific, so all can participate!

1.  Name one living person to whom you are not related and whom you do not know personally for whose existence you are grateful.

2. Extra Credit:  What is a Thanksgiving ritual that you remember fondly from your childhood?

Bonus:  Rewrite Sentence 1 without using the word ‘whom’.

My favorite author, Anne Lamott.

I remember going to see one set of grandparents for an early meal on Thanksgiving, then the other set for a later meal, and being so dang full after those two meals. But it was so good!

That first one is tough --I can think of a few. I'll go with one of my heroes, though --Carl Sagan.

What I remember most from Thanksgiving is lots of cooks in a small kitchen :-) And arguing about who had to peel the potatoes.

J. K. Rowling. After I read the first Harry Potter book, I was very nearly convinced I could fly, if someone would've handed me a broom....

Eating dessert. My mom was against desserts. We ate fruit for dessert, except for Thanksgiving and Passover.

Name one unrelated and personally-unknown-to-you living person whose existence fills you with gratitude.

I'm thankful to George Clooney for helping me dream...
I remember my parents instructing me NOT to fill up at the first grandma's house so we'd have plenty of room for the second grandma's house. They both served Thanksgiving LUNCH, of course, and we were early to leave the first in order to arrive late to the second.

And here's mine. I am thankful to the bureaucrat in the State Dept of Motor Vehicles who will send my husband's handicap parking placard. It can't come soon enough.

I'm also grateful to Rev. Adam McHugh, author of "Introverts in the Church."

I am amazed that some people had to go to two Thanksgiving feasts in one day. That almost sounds like torture.
