Yes, I'd say... that is a pretty long list of things that made me happy on the Fourth Thursday in November.

By the way... it doesn't feel like a Thursday.  Or really even a Saturday or Sunday.  Thanksgiving feels like a day suspended in mid air (or mid calendar I suppose)  A magical day unlike any other.
