Rather than post a news article or share information about the history of Thanksgiving Day, I thought I’d post some of my favourite quotes:
A lot of Thanksgiving days have been ruined by not carving the turkey in the kitchen. ~Kin Hubbard
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ~John F. Kennedy
God gave us our relatives; thank God we can choose our friends. ~Ethel Watt Mumford
I absolutely adore Thanksgiving. It’s the only holiday I insist on making myself. ~Ina Garten
None is more impoverished than the one who has no gratitude. Gratitude is a currency that we can mint for ourselves, and spend without fear of bankruptcy. ~Fred De Witt Van Amburgh
There is one day that is ours. Thanksgiving Day is the one day that is purely American. ~O. Henry
My restaurants are never opened on Thanksgiving; I want my staff to spend time with their family if they can. My feeling is, if I can’t figure out how to make money the rest of the year so that my workers can enjoy the holidays, then I don’t deserve to be an owner. ~Michael Symon
And my favourite:
Who does not thank for little will not thank for much. ~ Estonian Proverb
May your day be happy, safe and healthy!
Thank you, BNV readers!
