Opportunity to see the whole family

November 20, 2018

Thanksgiving has always been a very important holiday to me and my family. This holiday is one of the very few times throughout the entire year that I have the opportunity to see everyone in my family. It is always very fun to spend the day cooking all of the food, playing card games, watching movies and catching up with everyone.

Thanksgiving definitely does not get the attention that it deserves. It is one of the few holidays that everyone in our country comes together to celebrate. It seems like Christmas gets all of the hype, but that is something that only Christians celebrate. Thanksgiving is a time for everyone in America to be with their family and be thankful for all that they have.

One way that we can give Thanksgiving more attention is by having more Thanksgiving commercials. If we see more commercials, or even have more people talk about it on the radio, people will want to do little things like putting up Thanksgiving decorations or even just saying “Happy Thanksgiving!”

I always look forward to watching Hallmark Christmas movies, but this year, the channel started playing Christmas movies before Halloween. The Christmas movies always put me in a festive mood. If they made some Thanksgiving movies, they would for sure make everyone excited for the holiday.

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I look forward to seeing my family, playing Disney card games with my younger cousins, and eating cheesy potatoes! I can’t wait to celebrate this year.
