I enjoy these colorful harvest displays, which are so very photogenic! No one does them better than the folks in Vegas. This was a rather small exhibit I chanced on while walking through the new Crystals Mall at the multi-billion dollar “City Center” complex. The photo is framed so that you don’t notice the upscale shops, crowds of people, etc. It seems a tranquil setting, even though it was quite busy.

I want to wish all my American friends a very Happy Thanksgiving!! Canadian Thanksgiving is in early October which makes sense because harvest is much earlier in this colder climate. Thanksgiving is a uniquely (North) American Holiday, dating back over 400 years to the landing of the Pilgrims near Boston. Tradition has it that Thanksgiving was a celebration of thanks shared by the Pilgrims and their Native Indian friends after a good harvest. Thanksgiving is a time for family and football and thanks. It’s the most important holiday in the United States — bigger even than Christmas (something my European friends find hard to believe). And it heralds the unpleasant and extremely busy “Black Friday” shopping glut…not a good time to be in the stores.
