A new kind of holiday

From the Boston Herald:

Things became more complicated still when half the cousins divorced.
Somebody’s children were always missing, spending Thanksgiving with the ex and his new wife’s family. A cousin far too old to be dating at all showed up with a new young girlfriend and two sullen teens pining for their presplit family. This is the time when Thanksgiving turns bittersweet, when it’s much about who isn’t there: children of divorce, parents and grandparents who’ve died.
