In the month of November, Thanksgiving is a time for celebration, good food, and giving thanks. Most importantly Thanksgiving day is an annual national holiday in the United States and Canada celebrating the harvest and other blessings of the past year. We decided that it would be fun to ask some teachers what their Thanksgiving traditions are.

-What are your Thanksgiving traditions?

Mr. Rodriguez: “Our family tradition is to hang out with family and also travel. Sometimes we go to New Jersey because we have family there, or to Florida, but this year we are going to Connecticut.”

-What do you usually like to eat on Thanksgiving?

Mr. Rodriguez: “I love pork, turkey is okay. Not really a huge fan of it. Pretty much any food, I’m down for anything.”

Mr. Rodriguez: “Hanging out with family, giving thanks for the many blessings that we have throughout the year.”

-What are your Thanksgiving traditions?

Coach Hamilton: “What we do is have family come in and my daughter helps us cook. We started doing that two years ago, but for the most part we hang out with our family that come visit us.”

-What do you usually like to eat on Thanksgiving?

Coach Hamilton: “This year I’m going to deep fry a turkey and try something different. We are also going to have sweet potato pie. It’s my favorite food for Thanksgiving.”

-What is your favorite part of Thanksgiving?

Coach Hamilton:” Being able to see everybody and a lot of family that I haven’t seen in a whole year. Looking back and being thankful about being where you are now.”

-What are your Thanksgiving traditions?

Mr. Mcfry: “Just eating with the family for Thanksgiving dinner.”

Mr. Mcfry: “Ham and eating stuffed peppers.”

-What is your favorite part of Thanksgiving?

Mr. Mcfry: “Sitting around when everyone is done eating and hanging out. That’s always the best part.”

As a result, we can celebrate the day by giving appreciation for the past while also looking forward to the future. A day to spend with family and friends, as well as a chance to reconnect and recall. Thanksgiving Day is a time to honor not just goods, but the people in our life who make everything else meaningful in order to make the most of this season of abundance.
