For many far-flung families, the holidays are the only time of year when people can take time to get together in a memorable way. If your heart really isn’t in the Black Friday rush, or if you can postpone your holiday shopping (or do it online), don’t feel you have to be one in the crowds. Enjoy activities with your loved ones for the rest of the weekend, carrying even further the spirit of Thanksgiving that you shared warmly on Thursday. Pictures, a journal, a lovingly prepared box of from-the-feast treats all make marvelous gifts, too!
