The holiday of Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of the year for families to make new memories, to be thankful for everything that’s been given to them, and most of all eat their weight in turkey and stuffing.

“My favorite part of thanksgiving is getting to see my boys when they come down from college, and of course eating all of the wonderful food,” study hall teacher Mrs. Oberndorfer said.

Along with making new memories, comes reminiscing about older memories.

“I remember one year when I was younger, my entire family went outside after thanksgiving dinner and sat around a giant bonfire and sang songs and shared family stories from a long time ago,” freshman Laura Still said.

Sometimes, families can get caught up in the stress of cooking a delicious meal, and forget the true meaning of thanksgiving, which is giving thanks for the amazing things one have in their life.

“I am most thankful for my amazing family. I would be nothing without the loving support they give me 24/7,” junior Delaney Purdham said.

Thanksgiving can be a great time to eat amazing food, but it’s also great for spending time with family.
