Thanksgiving will turn into a long holiday weekend for most government employees. 

West Virginia state offices, Hampshire County offices and both Romney and Capon Bridge town offices are all closed both Thursday and Friday. 

The federal government only recognizes Thanksgiving as a holiday (no mail delivery), but don’t be surprised if a lot of those offices have skeleton crews, at best, Friday.

Hanukkah begins about as early as ever, running from next Monday, Nov. 29, for 8 days until Dec. 6.
