Commentary: Thanksgiving is a time for memories and traditions

Thanksgiving. My favorite holiday. All you have to do is eat, visit with family, nap, watch football, nap and eat leftovers that night. No pressure for presents, as at Christmas. No fireworks, but no chiggers and 90 percent humidity, as on the Fourth of July in Kansas. No deciding whether to be Early Elvis or a cowboy, as on Halloween. No tears or what-they-might-have-become, as on Memorial Day.
