When people think of Thanksgiving, they think of their family and delicious, homemade foods like: turkey, ham, dinner rolls, pumpkin pie, and egg noodles. Thanksgiving is a time when families reunite and enjoy time and food together. People have traditions for Thanksgiving like watching football, putting up the  Christmas tree and shopping on Black Friday. For students and teachers, Thanksgiving also means a break from school.
