Thanksgiving is an annual event where familes and friends gather for a feast, to share some stories and often watch football. It is a wonderful American holiday, and it is one of the ones I look forward to most often every year. I hope everyone reading this has a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday in 2011.
Here are a few quotes I found from around the web on Thanksgiving that I thought I would share:
“Thanksgiving is an emotional holiday. People travel thousands of miles to be with people they only see once a year. And then discover once a year is way too often.” ~Johnny Carson
“I love Thanksgiving turkey. It’s the only time in Los Angeles that you see natural breasts.” ~Arnold Schwarzenegger
“Thanksgiving is so called because we are all so thankful that it only comes once a year.” ~P. J. O’Rourke
“Thanksgiving Day, a function which originated in New England two or three centuries ago when those people recognized that they really had something to be thankful for – annually, not oftener – if they had succeeded in exterminating their neighbors, the Indians, during the previous twelve months instead of getting exterminated by their neighbors, the Indians. Thanksgiving Day became a habit, for the reason that in the course of time, as the years drifted on, it was perceived that the exterminating had ceased to be mutual and was all on the white man’s side, consequently on the Lord’s side; hence it was proper to thank the Lord for it and extend the usual annual compliments.” ~Mark Twain
“Small cheer and great welcome makes a merry feast.” ~William Shakespeare
