How many of you are still running around town gathering up those last minute Thanksgiving essentials? We know how difficult it can be to breathe, let alone stop stressing about what people will be eating this Thursday.

 

In case you missed the memo, we’ve been celebrating Thanksgiving in America as early as 1789 after George Washington issued a proclamation. In 1863, President Lincoln made Thanksgiving a federal holiday, taking place on the last Thursday of the month in November.

Not to be confused with No Shave Movember, also a paramount holiday where men grow out their beards and mustaches for charity and men’s health.

Next to gathering around a great meal, people are why we get together, and during the busy holiday season it’s easy to lose sight of that.

Author and Speaker Rob Bell talks a lot about how to remember those important moments being disciplined enough to grab ahold of them and live in the present.

People are anthropomorphic, which means people connect with people. We find our solidarity in gathering together. It’s important this holiday to try and put the emphasis on who you are with, and what you can do for them.

Over at Anthony’s we are thankful this holiday season for the ability to connect with our guests, family, and friends. Serving people is a great joy for us.

This holiday season is also known for it’s nostalgic religious traditions. Rob mentions in one of his books, the very ancient story of Moses meeting God. Moses was said to of taken off his sandals out of reverence for standing on holy ground. Rob relates that to his relationships with other humans.

He says when he’s out sharing meals with people, it reminds him that he’s standing on holy ground, and those moments for him, are gold. Moments Rob says, he wants to preserve and cherish.

There’s no doubt, that it’ll be hard to slow down this holiday season. But we encourage you to try and enjoy every moment of it.

Remember to cherish those moments with people, and try and do something good this holiday season.

We’ll leave you with this quote, and from all of us at Anthony’s we wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!

“You’ll need coffee shops and sunsets and road trips. Airplanes and passports and new songs and old songs, but people more than anything else. You will need other people and you will need to be that other person to someone else, a living breathing screaming invitation to believe better things.” –Jamie Tworkowski
