Celebrate a harvest feast with friends, family

ENID, Okla. — The exact time and place of the first Thanksgiving may be debatable, but that’s not the point.

Even if you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in the traditional sense, the annual holiday is a time for many to appreciate a harvest feast with family and friends.

Gathering around the table, we pause to celebrate life’s many gifts with our loved ones.

For many sports fans, Thanksgiving is a prime time to watch some quality football. Shoppers also were eyeing the clock for Black Friday to kick off.

Even if we quibble over taboo table subjects like politics or religion, at least we can agree on the weather: This year we’re blessed with warmer climes.

Enid and Garfield County Certified Director of Emergency Management Mike Honigsberg predicts the next several days should be relatively warmer.

That means daytime highs in the 50s, which suits us just fine for late November.

That’s much better than snow and ice being dumped on us.

We all have reasons to be grateful. Before you chow down, be mindful of your blessings.
