at this time, the air has a slight chill in it and thanksgiving is within reach. it instantly reminds you of pilgrims, big family dinners, parades, football games, and four-day weekends.
the holiday was always something to look forward to. everyone would sit around their table, talking and laughing- enjoying one another's company... filling their plates with turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, casseroles, warm bread, and cranberry sauce.
and after the pies were served, the best was always taking a stroll down the quiet streets and smelling that for-off scent of cinnamon and burning firewood.
and the next day would be the biggest shopping day of year. the start of everyone's christmas lists.
