Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving is a special holiday for families to come together for good food, good company, and good cheer before all the Christmas preparations begin.

Though kids may view Thanksgiving as the start of the school holiday, there’s a lot more for them to know about it than simply no class, stuffed turkey and whipped cream-topped pumpkin pie.
