Thanksgiving is just around the corner! This is the time of year where family and friends get together and enjoy the holidays. Some people say this is the most wonderful time of the year! During this time of year, you find out what people have to be grateful for. You realize what you have that some people might not have and you say to yourself, “Wow, I really am a lucky person.”
During Thanksgiving, everyone deserves to be with a friend or even just one family member. Everyone deserves to also have a roof over their head and amazing meal on their table, which brings me to the wonderful food served on Thanksgiving!
Most people think of Thanksgiving as a day full of great tasting and smelling food. You can experiment with new recipes and new food, or you can just stick to your traditional recipes. There are so many fun and delicious foods involved with Thanksgiving such as turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, beats, and plenty more. Just imagine walking into the kitchen and smelling that ham or turkey slowly cooking in the oven, and smelling the apple pie rise to perfection! Just thinking of the smells of these food and the tastes of them must be making your mouth water. Oh, the goodness that comes with Thanksgiving food.
Another one of the many different things about Thanksgiving is that everyone has different traditions. There are many different religions and races, and every single person celebrate Thanksgiving in a different way. With it, either being the food or the activities they do. Thanksgiving is a time for you to be with the ones you love and to celebrate every single minute of this wonderful holiday the way your family always does. Sitting in the living room with your family all around, talking about your lives and everything that makes everyone happy is a feeling that no one should miss out on. Everyone deserves to experience this holiday and every single other one with the ones they love. Thanksgiving is a time for family, happiness, and, last but not least, love.
