Students give thanks, take a break and make memories

By Lisa Henderson

Keep 38 years of tradition alive and watch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving with family and friends on Thanksgiving day at 8 p.m. on ABC.


For those of you who take great pleasure in eating gluttonously, what is quite possibly your favorite holiday is right around the corner once again. Not only is Thanksgiving a time to appreciate what you have, but it’s also a time to enjoy visiting with family and friends that you haven’t seen in a while. Many of you will take advantage of Black Friday sales, camping out to ensure that you’ll get that iPhone you’ve had your eye on. We’re privileged to have so much and should remember to keep the less fortunate in our minds and hearts. Whether you’re planning to travel, party or just plain relax, you can take the time to appreciate (what should be) a stress-free week. Have a safe and happy holiday.
