For a long, long time, the bible has been saying that thanksgiving is so good and healthy that our lives should be drenched in it. Now research is saying the same thing. Gratitude is just plain good for you. It gives you “more energy, more optimism, more social connections and more happiness,” and it makes you less likely to be “depressed, envious, greedy or alcoholic.” So maybe, now that the Wall Street Journal seconds the bible, we’ll sit up and take notice. We’re funny creatures, don’t you think?
