Every year my family gets together for thanksgiving. But it’s not just my immediate family, it’s grandparents, cousins, great aunts and uncles and third cousins once removed, and college room mates of second cousins.
And we don’t just get together for one day, but for the whole weekend. We eat, play cards, cook, talk, snack, go for hikes, sing, and consume large quantities of pie. And it’s wonderful.
