Mexican people do not celebrate Thanksgiving. We usually save our grateful prayers for Christmas or December 12th (The Lady of Guadalupe), but among all the religious non-sense Mexican people are devoted to, I find this foreign holiday particularly appealing. Just reflecting upon all the good things, about how lucky you are, despite the catastrophes around, seems pretty fair to me, wether you believe in God or not.

All in all, I do have a lot of things to be grateful for. In spite of all the accidents, drawbacks, changes, crisis, and trouble, my family and I are still alive, and more or less in one piece. We are still granted our daily bread, and our problems have solutions. We have reasons to be grateful.
