Thanksgiving is a National Holiday that occurs on the fourth Thursday in November and is based on the Colonial Pilgrims 1621 harvest meal. Thanksgiving is a day of giving thanks and sacrifice for the blessing of the food collected at the end of the harvest season. Thanksgiving centers on cooking and sharing a bountiful meal with family and friends. Parades have become an integral part of the holiday as well as football.

Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!!!!!!
