ATTENTION RETAIL SHOPPERS: The search for Thanksgiving goes on, with mixed sucess. While we have found some clues- the turkeys displayed in the middle aisle of the meat section, the indian corn at the front of the store by the christmas tree- our suspicions have been confirmed that the Thanksgiving holiday is, indeed, missing. As we drive through town, gazing out the window at all of the colourful lights & inflatable santas, my fellow reporters & I have a growing feeling that Christmas has something to do with the abduction. Don’t quote me on that, though- investigation is still underway.
While the retail market seems to be ever striving to stifle this holiday, local families are still standing stong against the attacks. Miss Sarah Joy states that she would like to see Thanksgiving in the stores & decorating yards again. “Really, whatever DID happen to Thanksgiving?” she asked as she drove past ballard park. Later, my investigation took me to the home of a local toddler who says she loves the Thanksgiving holiday. “I tan’t wait til Thaksgivin’,” Miss Mercy Riley says “’cause Crae & aunt Mel’nie comin’.” Riley related how she would have fun with her Grandparents & mrs Teresa too. “Is Thaksgivin’ this Sadurday?” she asked.
Join the fight!!! Thank God for all of His bountiful gifts. Don’t just eat lots of turkey- take some time to consider how much you have to be thankful for. What a great reminder that every good and perfect gift is from above.
