I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is almost here. It seems like each year time goes by a little bit faster. Sometimes I think Thanksgiving gets pushed aside and hidden because of Black Friday that follows right after. I thought to give Thanksgiving the love and attention it deserves in sharing 10 reasons why I love Thanksgiving so much. Enjoy!

10 Reasons I Love Thanksgiving
You can eat all day and no one will say a word.
Instead of one side dish, you can scoop up a little of each.
Thanksgiving themed movies and shows.
Thanksgiving day parade.
Pretty fall leaves.
Pumpkin Pie and all other desserts to stuff your face with.
A good excuse to sit down with the whole family and spend time together.
Tasty leftovers for the rest of the week and weekend follow.
Football season, or the dog show if you aren’t a fan of sports.
Cool weather is perfect for warm and cozy hoodies.
So those are some of the fun reasons why I love Thanksgiving. Make sure to share why you are such a fan. If you can’t tell the delicious food and family time are truly my two favorite reasons. I love getting to spend time with my kids and family, it makes my world fill perfectly complete.
While my family didn’t gather for Christmas, that I can remember, we always found a way to gather for Thanksgiving. When my eldest was born, I recall spending nearly every Thanksgiving with my father and stepmom then having another full family gathering on my mom’s side at my Grams house. This year, though, I am not certain what new Thanksgiving tradition we will have. My gram has moved down south and my father will be out hunting.

I have fond memories of my childhood sitting at the kid’s table with my cousins at my Grams house. Listening to family chatter and laugh. Thanksgiving reminds me that family is truly a special thing to have and I am ever grateful to have people I call family.
