The best day of the year

Counting days on the calendar

to that fourth Thursday in November….

Everyone is coming

gathering from far and near

to celebrate the gift of thanks

because it is the best day of the year.

The smell of turkey

fills the house today

and we may sneak

a taste or two off the veggie tray.

Waiting for that jolly man

in the parade bringing up the rear

that marks the beginning

and that’s why it is the best day of the year.

So, come and join us

in the grand celebration

today starts the season –

the season of anticipation.

Today we give thanks

for everything we hold so dear

and enjoy the good company

because it is the best day of the year.

  1. It sound like it just might be the best day of the year, and I hope you had a really good one!! 😀

    And thanks for the email reply! Yes it’s fine to use all three, whenever it suits you best, and don’t worry about the pictures they’re not essential to the post, but the words are! And I agree with you about the name thing, that’s why I’m called Suzy on here, and Wordmuser isn’t my surname. Would make an interesting name though!! 😉
