  1. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

    As the world descends deeper and deeper into chaos, society as a whole breaks down, and World War 3 erupts, our lives will change drastically. Look around at your family, your children, yourself, and be thankful for the little things in life. Everything else won’t matter too much soon.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all.

  2. Gee Thanksgiving must be a big holiday for family if it’s the busiest travel day of the year. No wonder people want the day off to celebrate and give thanks.

  3. in yiddishkeit everyday is thanksgiving.

    there is not a moment that goes by that a person cannot find something that he owes thanksgiving to Hashem

  4. I don’t know what the big deal is about cooking for a family dinner and getting together- we do this EVERY shabbos and yom tov, sometimes even for 3 days straight!!!!!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. It is true that everyday and every moment a person can and should give thanksgiving to Hashem. And so it should be, should it not? But I think these people see this as an opportunity to give thanks to Hashem in community with family and friends, to celebrate with family and friends on that special day all that they have to be thankful for. To see their faces and hold them close to their hearts and give thanks for them. For some of these people this might be the one or two times a year they have to get together and thank Hashem for each other.

  6. That everyone should be blessed as you are to have your family so near to have those dinners. Not everyone is so fortunate. Count your blessings and don’t look down on people who are not so blessed. Sometimes we should try not to be so selfish and single minded when responding to other people. We do not live alone on this planet.

  7. #5:
