In school, we learned about the origins of the Thanksgiving holiday and the traditions surrounding it. Now, more than ever, it’s important to count our blessings instead of the things that are going wrong. So we asked some of our youngest neighbors what they’re thankful for this year as an adorable reminder.

“This Thanksgiving holiday I’m thankful for…..”

“My friends, toys, and Mommy and Daddy.” -Mackenzie, 6

“My family, a tablet, my friends and my mom.” -Ryker, 5

“My family, Jesus, Native Americans who made this holiday, my cousins and my grandparents.” -Adley, 7

“Going to school.” -Sadie, 3

“Hugs, presents, kindness, friends, and Mommy and Daddy.” -Kenlee, 4

“Grandpa sending me postcards in the mail.” -Zoey, 6

“My family, baseball and money.” -Jayden, 10
