In terms of the weather, this was the nicest Thanksgiving I have experienced in many years.
I live in the Deep South, a place where the winter is very mild and only lasts a few weeks at most.
Most years the entire month of December is humid and muggy, the sort of weather fit for shorts and flip flops. This year we had a lovely drop in temps just before Thanksgiving, and I thought it felt lovely! I actually wore long pants and a button-up shirt for the meal, which I had not been able to do in a long time! With the stove on all day, slowly the house began heating up, and by the time we finished eating I did need to turn on the air conditioner. I thought this would be the first time I could get through a Thanksgiving without using the A/C but I was wrong. Even with so many people crammed into the same small area, the central AC was powerful enough to make us all nice and chilly within a few minutes. Personally I think it feels more like the holiday season when it’s cold, so I cranked the thermostat all the way down to make it uncomfortably cold. I know that when the utility bill comes in the mail I will regret running the air conditioner so much, but for the day it made everything feel perfect! After all there is no law saying you can only use the air conditioning on hot days, is there? I can run the A/C as much as I want all winter long.
