Concluding Words-

While Thanksgiving is synonymous with turkey and the apple cinnamon pies, when the big spread comes around and the dinner is served- never forget what thanksgiving is essentially all about. While you compliment and shower the turkey chef will all live for the foodgasm, do not also forget the others who make your life a little bit better in other manners on all the other days of the year! On that note, happy Thanksgiving!
