Happy Turkey Day!
I must say Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, mainly because it gives me the freedom to eat how ever much I want without feeling too much like a cow. But of course, there is so much more behind Thanksgiving than mashed potatoes, turkey, and stuffing.
Thanksgiving is a time not only to obviously be thankful, but also a chance to spend time with the family. Myself and most of my friends spend Thanksgiving with family, eating, talking, and just spending time together which can be rather difficult in today’s world. Our busy schedules and hectic lives seem to hardly allow for quality family time. Thanksgiving, like many other holidays, allows you to take a break from your crazy schedules to just relax and spend time with your family.
Of course, Thanksgiving is also a time for to reflect on what you are thankful for. Whether you are thankful for the awesome cheese potatoes your grandma makes just for you every year on Thanksgiving, or you realize how thankful you are for your family and how much they mean to you, Thanksgiving is a day that makes you realize a lot of these things. I remember in elementary school how we would get the assignments in class asking us to write down the things we are thankful for and why. And although this assignment may have seemed like a pain to do back then, it made me realize what the true purpose of Thanksgiving was.
So Happy Turkey Day! And remember to count your blessings!
