I have a lot to be thankful for, including Thanksgiving Day. On every other major holiday, food is just a side attraction. On Thanksgiving, food is the main event and chowing down is the main activity — unless you count falling asleep watching football.

My brothers and I were able to eat our weight in food even on days when we weren’t particularly hungry. However, we were so busy playing with and arguing over the new toys on Christmas that we had to be forced to go to the kitchen to eat the baked ham.
