Happy Thanksgiving

Lunch out with a friend today and a big family meal on Saturday. And, despite the fact that it's still not a holiday here - must ... try ... harder - I'd like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.

You know, with all the talk about American cultural imperialism, I'm not sure why something as good as Thanksgiving hasn't taken off here. I think that the faster pace of life in Ireland today and the excessively pressured Christmas season strengthens the argument for a Thanksgiving pause around now.
