Top Ten Things to be Thankful for this Thanksgiving

  1. The Thanksgiving day football games – This year there are only three games: Vikings v.s. Lions @12:30 pm, Redskins v.s. Cowboys @4:30 pm, Steelers v.s. Colts @ 8:30 pm.
  1. The fabulous food your family prepares for you –  Maybe your mom burns the turkey a little or makes lumpy potatoes, but regardless, the feast they prepared is a once in a year event.
  1. All your relatives – Maybe your house on Thanksgiving is like mine and you have to deal with 27 cousins who want to spend the night.
  1. The possibility of not getting homework on Thanksgiving break – Let’s face it, there’s probably the one teacher who will give you a packet to do. Other than that, you won’t have other school work to stress over.
  1. The realization that Christmas is almost here – Christmas food, Christmas movies, and Christmas break are only a few weeks away. Can it get any better?
  1. You’ve made it ⅜’s of the way through this school year – Although you may be drowning in a sea of homework and extracurricular activities, you’ve made it this far, and you can make it to the end of second quarter. Don’t give up now.
  1.  If you love getting things at extremely low prices (who doesn’t?), you have Black Friday sales to be grateful for – Let’s be realistic, we all love to buy new things and most of us can’t buy much working for minimum wage. Black Friday is the perfect holiday for savvy shoppers.
  1. During Thanksgiving break, you can catch up on your binge watching – Whether you use Hulu or Netflix, you have a whole week to watch 10 years worth of TV.
  1. You get a break from waking up early – Instead of waking up at 6:30 a.m., feel free to wake up at 11:30 a.m.

10. Pumpkin flavored things – Whether it’s a pumpkin spice latte or pumpkin pie, pumpkin flavored things are definitely something for which to be thankful.
