Back in 1939, President Roosevelt opted to move Thanksgiving up a week from what was tradition at the time, thereby setting the new standard of having the holiday on the second-to-last Thursday of each November. This was done in the interest of promoting holiday retail sales on what is now known as Black Friday. But, given that this change occurred decades ago, why should this year feel any later? It’s simple: This year, Thanksgiving happens to fall on the last Thursday of the month. It’s funny how things like that work out. But, late or not, one thing’s for sure: This Thanksgiving will surely be as full of family, fun, and, of course, great food, as any other. I hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful Turkey Day and a great holiday season, in general.
