What is Thanksgiving all about? For me, the most important part of the holiday has always been getting together with family, or with friends if I was living far from home, and counting our blessings over a delicious meal.

Thanksgiving in Los Angeles 100 years ago was an interesting affair. World War I was over, but troops were still stationed overseas, and most institutions continued to support the effort either by rationing food, or sending supplies “Over There.”

Happy Thanksgiving

November 23 is Thanksgiving. The holiday began as a celebration of the fall harvest, and has become a day when we are encouraged to appreciate and give thanks for the joys and blessings in our lives.
