December 5, 2012 Salome High updates Thanksgiving Month! The month of November is important, because of Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving Day is traditionally a day for families and friends to get together for a special meal. The meal often includes turkey, stuf���ng, potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy, pumpkin pie, and vegetables. Thanksgiving Day is a time for many people to give thanks for what they have.
