So I learned a new holiday terms today.
Of course, you know about Thanksgiving–when we celebrate with our family all the wonderful things in life that G-d has blessed us with.
Well now there is “Friendsgiving.”
This typically occurs on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, and is enjoyed with friends (instead of family).
We are still grateful, but we just are thankful with a different set of significant others in our lives.
To me there is nothing like my family–as my father taught me:
Blood is thicker than water.
But friends are important in our lives as well, and good and true friends are so hard to come by–so we should celebrate them and with them whenever possible too.
Finally, I choose this flower, “Bird of Paradise” for this blog, because I love it and it is something wonderful from G-d that I am grateful for.
Happy Thanksgiving and Friendsgiving to All! 😉
