Have you ever wondered how people spend their Thanksgiving holiday? I actually haven’t truly thought about it that much until now. Some people fly across the country just to be with their loved ones on Thanksgiving, while some people just drive around town to be with their loved ones. Also, some people host a Thanksgiving dinner and invite family and friends to their home and enjoy each other’s company. Some people end up spending Thanksgiving alone. Even though everyone has a different way of celebrating certain holidays, what everyone who does celebrate Thanksgiving has in common is that we become more aware of the things that represent that holiday, such as hosting dinners, gatherings, giving thanks, family time, and projecting love. I’ve written a poem about this wonderful holiday to show my appreciation toward what Thanksgiving means to me.

November is a month where we celebrate why we’re thankful

It’s important to show this so we won’t seem ungrateful

Because there is someone else that may have a harder life than our own

And had lost hope in the holidays and spend them alone

It hurts to see those hurting and then develop bad attitudes

That is why we should come together and show a bit of gratitude

To cease the depression and hopelessness towards this beautiful holiday

And become enlightened and forgiving up until and after Thanksgiving day

So why put on your Grinch costume so early in the holiday season

Be humble and kind without any given reason

Rejoice and give thanks on a day that is recognized for valuing appreciation

Show love toward your family and friends, and become an inspiration

If you’re alone, don’t forget that all you need is a change of heart

To see how Thanksgiving affects your life while still playing its part

It replaces unthankful with thankful, ungrateful with grateful, attitude with gratitude, and hopelessness with hope. 

Let this holiday season be that moment in your life that can positively help you cope

By admiring what you have in your life and be accepting for who you are

To succeed and heal from those old bandaged wounds that try to cover those open scars
