It’s Thanksgiving Day in the United States — my favorite holiday. I like that we set aside a day each year to be grateful for the things we have.
I have much to be thankful for this year — I’ve been very fortunate. A lot of this is because of this site, and because of my interaction with you, the readers. Thank you for making the community at Get Rich Slowly a top-notch place for people to find support along their financial journeys.
Here’s a video from 1951 that celebrates Thanksgiving. While it’s a little schmaltzy — and filled with lots of not-so-subtle “I’m glad I’m not a communist” sentiment — it does a fine job of conveying the mood and meaning of the holiday.
Like most of you, I’ll be spending the day with my family. While I’ve been focused on my book, Kris has been hard at work preparing lots of delicious food for today’s feast. Now it’s time for me to go downstairs and help.
Happy Thanksgiving. I’ll see you on Monday.
