Thanksgiving often gets lost in the shuffle of late-in-the-year holidays. Hidden between Halloween and Christmas, it’s not unusual to see Thanksgiving as an inconsequential midway point between the other two holidays, rather than the wonderful day it is in its own right.
Don’t get me wrong: I love buying gifts and decorating for Christmas, and there’s still a big part of me that regrets not being able to dress up on Halloween night and go trick-or-treating. But Thanksgiving has a special place in my heart, and it always will.
Halloween is about being, if for only one evening, something you aren’t. Thanksgiving celebrates how much we care about each other, just for being who and what we are. Christmas is a time to buy gifts and make people smile. On Thanksgiving, the smiles come just from spending time with those you love.
So this Thanksgiving, don’t forget how important the day truly is. Maybe you can even send your friends and loved ones free ecards from gotfreecards.com. Our animated e-cards are the perfect ways to say “I love you, and I’m thankful for you being in my life.”
