  1. The one thing I Love about Thanksgiving is simply just having the break from work. I love my work family and kids, but just being able to have time off is the best to regroup and refresh getting ready for the busy holiday season ahead!

  2. Being with family and friends, especially this year because I will be spending it with my very first grandchild who was born on Christmas Eve 2018.

  3. Thanksgiving is the one holiday that I see my cousins and their extended families. We all share our favorite recipes and enjoy catching up. We laugh, take photos and share stories and EAT!!!

  4. Love getting together with my family and friends and sharing a delicious meal. Watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade and taking a fall walk after dinner are also family favorites.

  5. One thing I love about Thanksgiving is getting together with my extended family.( My cousins, aunts, uncles, etc.) It is good to know that there are people who will love you no matter what. I always feel calm and “at home” when I am surrounded by my family.

  6. I love how my family and friends all get together and have a Thanksgiving feast, watch the parade, football, play a few games of cards, and just enjoy each others company.

  7. My husband and I spend the day reading and preparing food and then we have a very quiet dinned using my grandmother’s china. Alone time can be the best time.

  10. I love Thanksgiving because I get to spend time with my family and it helps me remember things I should be thankful for.

  11. My favorite memory of Thanksgiving is eating at a large table with my grandparents.
    My grandma would always make delicious dressing balls from her leftover buttermilk biscuits. I have since tried to duplicate her recipe, but it’s not the same without her delicious biscuits. I am thankful that my children can experience the family tradition although my grandparents have passed away long ago.

  12. Thanksgiving break means that I can pull out my favorite lessons – Holidays Around the World! Geography and ELA all rolled together in a super engaging way for the students!
