Thanksgiving is Almost Here!

As I mentioned in a prior post, Autumn is my favorite season of the year.  I went through the many reason’s why and a big part of it is because of Thanksgiving.  In recognition of this I’ve put together a list of why Thanksgiving is awesome.

  1.  The Food– This is one of the few times of the year it’s totally socially acceptable to over eat, encouraged even.  Though maybe not great for our health, I think it’s okay we get a pass on Thanksgiving.
  2. Spending Time With Family–  It only happens a couple of times throughout each year that I get to spend time with extended family and Thanksgiving is one of these times.
  3. Pumpkin Pie– No Thanksgiving would be complete without a slice of moms homemade pumpkin pie.
  4. Lions Football– Every single year since I can remember I’ve watched the Lions play on Thanksgiving.  Yes, most years I’m disappointed by the result, but it’s still a tradition most of the family looks forward to (sorry mom!)
  5. The Leftovers– I’m not usually a huge fan of leftovers, but for whatever reason cheesy potatoes, green bean casserole, turkey and dinner rolls are a recipe for leftover perfection.

Am I missing anything?  If so, what would you add?
