Thanksgiving #TwitterChat 11/28 7 pm ET

I love Thanksgiving. Even as I struggle with the "history" of Thanksgiving, I enjoy the meal, the time with family, the food. I think it is good to have the reminder to be thankful (though, anyone else sick of the vendor "Thankful for you" emails?). Today is the day before and the turkey is in …
