Thanksgiving may just be the best of all of the holidays. Food. Family. Football. It’s always a long weekend that has the fun of Christmas, without the stress of decorating and gift-giving. And this year, for the first time in a couple, many of us are celebrating in-person. As we head into the holiday week, we have a few fun reads – including Jason Gay’s ‘Rules of the Family Football Game’ (perhaps our favorite read of the year).
Have a happy Thanksgiving and we’ll see you again in December.
