Poor. Forgotten. Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.  It's the "no pressure" holiday.  All you have to do is show up and eat until you can't breath.  Then take a nap and eat again. Oh and tell everyone what you're thankful for!!!  I am often aggravaited by the commericalization of the Christmas holiday and how we are already hearing Christmas music, and seeing the trees.  I feel like Thanksgiving is completely overlooked and each year Christmas keeps getting earlier and earlier. 
On another note, I've seen on some other blogs people listing everyday what they're thankful for.  I've decided to take these last 15 days until Thanksgiving to list what I'm thankful for.

Season of Thankfullness: Day 1
Armed Forces
Since today is Veterans Day I thought it was very appropriate to start the Season of Thanks with the military.  I'm so thankful for all the men and women that risk their lives everyday to fight for our country.  I am also thankful to those who have served in the past.  I challenge you to thank a veteran today and let them know that you appreciate what they scarificed so that we live in free country.  Without them many of the other things on my "Thankful For" list would not be possible.

This is the second post about poor Thanksgiving that I've read today! You're right - it needs to be appreciated and not so overshadowed!
