    My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. No religion, shared by all, and great food.
    It’s a time when family and friends gather, and our tradition is to go around the table and say what we are grateful for. It’s something we all need to do, yet rarely say out loud. A good example is that I am grateful to call you my friend Tobi, but I don’t think I have ever actually said it?

      You have indeed said it. Not just with your words, but with your actions, too. I’m glad you are my friend, as well. <3

    I actually posted in a local Facebook town group just how unwelcome setting off amateur fireworks is. Besides the fact that it terrorizes pets and wakes babies, what about veterans with PTSD? Well, you would have thought I said cancel Christmas! It’s now up to 182 primarily negative comments. I refuse to look but my friends keep me in the loop. I happen to love fireworks when I seek them out and expect the noise intrusion. This post is spot on and I hope your ice cream was awesome!

    What a great article Tobi! Don’t fret over people thinking you are unpatriotic, I truly believe more folks can relate to your feelings than you realize. For me, I always dreaded the fireworks because of our dogs and also because of the veterans who live near by.

    Hi Tobi,
    My favorite holiday is Passover. Ever since childhood, I have enjoyed it. In childhood, the Seder would be held at my home, my aunt and uncle’s home, or my grandparents’ home. I enjoyed the change of food, dishes, and flatware. I just enjoyed being with my family.
