When Thanksgiving comes to mind, you may picture football fields, colorful fall leaves, and pumpkin pie.

This holiday tends to bring families together, and it creates feelings of joy for many people who participate.

Thanksgiving gives individuals a reminder to be thankful for the people in their lives, things they have, and the opportunities they are offered.

Junior Taryn Hass celebrates the holiday at her grandmother’s home.

“We usually go to my grandma’s,” Hass said. “I eat ham instead of turkey because turkey is nasty. Candied yams are my favorite.”
