Approximately 600 years ago, Pocahontas and Sacajawea sat down with Benjamin Franklin and Abraham Lincoln for a delicious turkey dinner, and Thanksgiving was born.
Each year, on a Thursday (Sacajawea’s favorite day), millions of Americans gather in their homes and collectively stuff themselves with poultry, potatoes, and pumpkin pie before slumping over for a festive nap.
Turkey naps are terrific, but there’s more to Thanksgiving than food and football and family and 4:00 am sales. The essence of Thanksgiving is gratitude.
For this reason, it seems prudent to take a moment to count blessings and reflect on good fortune in generally unstable times.
College basketball is well underway, and cause for gratitude abounds. With a tip of the cap to Chris Columbus and Lon Kruger, please enjoy 10 reasons for Rebel fans to rejoice and give thanks this holiday season.
