While Thanksgiving is a US-based holiday & we are Norwegian, Mrs. Claus and I have celebrated it since its inception as an official holiday. We love the idea and spirit of it... a time to reflect and thank God for all of His wonderful blessings. The timing of the US Thanksgiving is perfect for jump-starting the holiday season... so we adopted it. No matter where you are in the world, I encourage you to take a moment and reflect on everything you have to be thankful for.
I have a lot to be thankful for this year. I am particularly grateful that the elves strike is over. It is good to have them back. Not just in time for the ramp-up to full operations but also in time to enjoy Thanksgiving Dinner with us.
It's going to be a great Holiday season, a very Merry Christmas, and a blessed New Year.
