“Thanksgiving is so called because we are all so thankful that it only comes once a year.”– P. J. O’Rourke




The Thanksgiving tradition is, we overeat. ‘Hey, how about at Thanksgiving we just eat a lot?’ ‘But we do that every day!’ ‘Oh. What if we eat a lot with people that annoy the hell out of us?”– Jim Gaffigan


“In November, people are good to each other. They carry pies to each other’s homes and talk by crackling woodstoves, sipping mellow cider. They travel very far on a special November day just to share a meal with one another and to give thanks for their many blessings – for the food on their tables and the babies in their arms.”– Cynthia Rylant, In November


“Now is no time to think of what you do not have. Think of what you can do with what there is.”– Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea


Thanksgiving: A day when you trudge upon barren or even snow-packed roads to share a feast with family and friends  – a feast that many will not have, with never a wary thought that you are a part of those who do have, and not giving a thought of those who don’t – Decker


“I come from a family where gravy is considered a beverage.”– Erma Bombeck
