11 things to love about Thanksgiving
The preparation. Cooking in the kitchen with mom and grandma and all your aunts is way fun, you’ve gotta admit it.
Waking up early is actually fun... it comes with a parade and an ooey gooey breakfast (if you’re lucky!)
The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade... We’re suckers for big character balloons, what can we say.
Crafting turkeys out of construction paper with your young cousins...hello, it’s one craft project you don’t have to try hard to excel at.
Graduating from the kids’ table (yes!).
Mocking Dad’s ridiculously loud commentary directed at the TV Screen during the big game...um, Dad? They can’t hear you.
Yelling at the screen yourself (bad call, ref!).
Slipping outside to escape family drama…and noticing how absolutely gorgeous fall is.
Best. Food. Ever.
Sampling of all the pies on the dessert table...guilt-free!
Fam. Because even though they argue about silly stuff, and even though they drive you crazy, they’re still the people who love you no matter what. And what’s not to love about that?
What do you love most about Thanksgiving? (And we mean aside from green bean casserole, ‘cause when we asked GL staffers that Q, that was pretty much the unanimous response. Sigh.)
