In a Gretna neighborhood already glowing with Christmas lights, one front door wears a defiant Thanksgiving banner.
“It makes me crazy we blew by Halloween (to Christmas), and there isn't even a Thanksgiving thing to be seen,” said Connie Lowndes, who owns that front door. “It's a time to reflect on blessings of the past year and be thankful for friends and family. Our culture blows by that too fast.”
