Thanksgiving is my favorite time of the year. It is running close to Christmas, but nothing can beat the fun you have on thanksgiving.
On Christmas you open the presents and do all that stuff but by the time you know it the special day is over because you started so early. But thanksgiving is way better, it's a full day of cooking and playing games and then the fun thing is you have thanksgiving the next day because there is bound to be left over food, which is the best kind of food.
Some funny things about thanksgiving are the thanksgiving quotes; there are some pretty funny ones out there. For example; "An optimist is someone who starts a new diet on thanksgiving"-Irv Kupcinet. Also "Thanksgiving was never meant to be shut up in a single day"- Robert Casper Lintner And last "Praise god even when you don't understand what he is doing."-Henry Jacobsen. Thanksgiving is just a fun time to have fun and eat a lot of food. Maybe you could take all day to play games and spend time with you family and think about everything you are grateful for instead of turning on the TV and watching football or some Disney shows.
But some things are tradition, for example I know that at my friend's house on thanksgiving they always watch the Grinch who stole Christmas to start getting ready for the next Holiday, I think that is fun but I think the family all needs to watch it together. Because what I have seen is the family eats and then just disappears. I mean it's a holiday! It is a special day and you need to do something with your family all day.
Something that my other friends family does is every thanksgiving a couple days before is they make turkey feathers out of colored construction paper and write things they are thankful for and then stick it behind a paper turkey on a door. It looks really cool and I think that is a very fun tradition. It is something to do as a family and also remember the things you are thankful for. Every family has different ways of celebrating thanksgiving but I think the one and only important thing is to be happy and enjoy the time you have being a happy family and also eat a lot of food.
