Skipping Thanksgiving

Written by Erica Siddle. I have noticed a disturbing trend occurring more each year throughout the month of November: the disappearance of Thanksgiving.  When I was younger, the month of November was defined by Thanksgiving.  Granted, I had the elementary Pilgrims and Indians dress up day and feast to look forward to for the entire month, but even throughout the excitement of getting to dress up after Hallo ...
