Here are a few of my top reasons why:
- 5 days off from work/school
- no added stress centered around gift purchasing
- Thanksgiving Day Chili at Mom & Dad's
- All the other fringe benefits that come along with a typical holiday: sleeping in, getting away from the "real world", good food, & etcetera
- Thanksgiving is much less commercialized than the other "holiday" that the box stores have been promoting since before Halloween.
- Spending time with family and friends
