Happy Thanksgiving from Clancy and Friends!

Since we Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving on a different day than our neighbors to the south, I already wrote about what I’m thankful for this year. And so, I won’t be reiterating my gratitude today. Instead, I’m going to leave a couple of other thoughts.

First, it’s really easy to get caught up in the rampant consumerism that is Black Friday and Cyber Monday, both of which have somehow grown into week-long events. I like shiny new toys as much as the next guy, but there are deals to enjoyed throughout the year. I’m not camping outside to save a little cash on a big screen TV. Second, no matter where you are in the world, regardless of whether or not you celebrate Thanksgiving, remember to spend more time with your family and loved ones. Every moment is precious and should be cherished accordingly.

And whether you choose to wish me a merry Christmas, a happy Hanukkah, a delightful Kwanzaa, happy holidays or a festive Festivus, I’m just glad you genuinely wish me well. And I wish you well too. Thanks for reading.
