Literature in a Hurry: Thanksgiving on the road


I have never had to travel far for Thanksgiving.

When I was a kid, all of my grandparents and most of my extended family lived within a 45 minute drive from our house. I got to spend every major holiday with at least one side of the family and was always home that night to sleep in my own bed.

Although I didn't realize it at the time, that was quite the luxury.
