You know the week before Thanksgiving has become a thing. And if you want to call it another excuse to party, another excuse to eat, drink, and participate in merriment, I’m all for it.
Beaujolais Nouveau 2017 officially kicked off this past Thursday. To me, it’s the precursor to all that’s great about the holidays. And this is meant as the highest compliment. It could just be another marketing gimmick, or another way to make a dollar, but who really cares? Any reason to get together with the people you love, to drink some simple and affordable wines, eat a whole bunch of yummy food, and just hang out is better than any reason not to.
And if there’s more, and as long as it’s not overkill, I’m all for more genuine celebrations as long as it’s in a healthy, safe, and heartwarming manner.
This event truly warms my heart.
