Holiday Confusion

by Nick Coons
Nov 20, 2003

Depending on where you live and how much you rely on the seasonal aisles in the grocery stores to tell you what holiday is up and coming, you're either getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving, or Christmas. Some of the stores may have even convinced you that this is now the time to buy all of your gifts for Christmas of next year as well.

This seems to be the time of year where everything commercial makes it difficult to figure out exactly which holiday spirit you should be in right now. Searching through some Arizona
Arizona(air-i'-ZON-u')

The State of Arizona comprises the extreme south-western portion of the United States. It is bounded on the north by Utah, on the east by New Mexico, on the south by Mexico, and on the west by California and Nevada.

news online, it seems that Thanksgiving has become a landmark on the calendar, as there is no actual reference to the holiday itself. "Lieberman will hit the campaign trail in Phoenix and Tucson before Thanksgiving", "The Wildcats hit the road for the first time this season during Thanksgiving week", and "Thanksgiving Travel to Rise for Both Auto and Air."

Arizona Paths has much to be thankful for this year. The site has grown tremendously, and the traffic has just about quadrupled since this time last year. And, of course, feel free to head over to the message boards and let everyone know what you're thankful for this holiday season.

I'm thankful that I'll be going to my parents' house to spend time with my family. But just as important, if not more important, is that I'll get to eat all that wonderful food!
