Thanksgiving is a very important holiday. Unlike Christmas, you don't benefit from the holiday. You don't get gifts, on Thanksgiving you get something else. On Thanksgiving you get something personal. The first part of the word Thanksgiving, is thanks. Giving thanks is the main idea of Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving let's you reflect on what you are thankful for. And it makes you realize how lucky you are to have the things that you have, like your family and friends. I like Thanksgiving because it lets my whole family get
together and spend time with one another. Each year my cousins and I go up to Maine. Our family doesn't see our cousins very often so this is a special time. We play football together and do many other things that bring us closer together. Because of my great family, I can be thankful for many things. But family and friends are the things that make my life worth living. And because I have such good family and friends, my life is fun and interesting. I am thankful for many things in the word, but I am most thankful for my family and friends.
