I was brought up Catholic , but I am better now :)
The 3 biggies were Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Halloween was just
fun (at least when I was a kid).
To me Thanksgiving is still a time of reflection. I oft wonder why my life
sucks so much but them I am reminded there are loads of folks worst off 
and I need to just shut the fuck up and deal with life as my ass is not on
fire and I am still breathing.
I never used to think about political or social activism but I sure have
been a lot of late.
 I saw the light and ran away from the church more or less screaming.
 This would be the subject of a long unpleasant rant I do not wish to
engage in presently.
