"Personally, we are grateful for water, mountains, music, road trips, laughter, and the chance to take a chance. Above all, we are grateful for our family and friends.
I'm sure that's why Thanksgiving is our favourite holiday, by far. It's really a feast of the Superpowers: simplicity (stripped of the gifts and excessive hype that can weigh down other holidays), love (of course), and humor among them. But gratitude reigns supreme on the holiday. Young and old, everyone gets it. We gather to give thanks."
