Thanksgiving and New Years is the best time to remember the holidays, but Thanksgiving and the holiday season can be just as important, if not more, than Christmas, says Bob Gaffney, author of The Holiday Book of Life.
Gaffney says the holiday can be a great time to look at yourself and reflect on what you value, and why you care so much about it.
Gaffe and distraction on social media is also something to consider when it comes to holiday parties.
“I always feel bad for my parents and siblings who are having a party at their house and I have to tell them to shut the door, so I can spend more time with them,” says Gaffes.
Gays and lesbians can celebrate Thanksgiving by wearing their best holiday garb, but the best thing to do is to focus on what is most important to each of us, says Giffes.
“We are all on a journey.
We all want the same thing, and we all want to share our joy.”
