Great beauty

Some of the horses were dressed in harness of great beauty and could really make the snow fly when they began to trot.

Remember the old song of Thanksgiving? Not the hymns, but the one everyone sang years ago about the fun of going on Thanksgiving to Grandmother’s house. “Over the river and through the woods, To Grandmother’s house we go. The horse knows the way to carry the sleigh, o’er the white and drifted snow.” We don’t have to hitch up the horse and cross a river and the woods, but we really should journey to visit family members as we used to do in those olden golden days.

Gas up the car and we can all pile in and away we go. Thanksgiving is really about warmth, the warmth of friendship. It’s about the gathering of family members for a special day after the harvest for a festive meal together.
