Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving, also known as Thanksgiving Day, is a harvest festival. Traditionally, it is a time to give thanks for the harvest and express gratitude in general. It is primarily a North American holiday. The traditional "first Thanksgiving" is recognized as having occurred at the site of Plymouth Plantation, in 1621. Today, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States.
Thanksgiving in our home is truly a day to give thanks, spend time with family and friends and of course enjoy the traditional turkey and all the fixins. We will have 14 counting Mary and I gathered together around the table. We will also keep our extended family and friends in our thoughts and prayers.
A special thanks to all who serve in our military and provide us the very freedoms we at home enjoy. May you be safe and come home soon.
