Growing up, like most children, Christmas was my favorite holiday. Mostly because I knew even if I good or bad Santa Claus was still coming to visit my house and leave a bunch of awesome presents. Toys, video games, sports equipment, and loads of other cool stuff. Once I found out there was no Santa when I was nine years old, Thanksgiving has become my favorite holiday.
I love going to a family member you haven’t seen in a while house or when they come to your house. You can catch up, eat some snacks, drink come beers and watch/play football. Then of course there is the awesome food. There is nothing like sitting around the table with your family and the people closest to you and enjoying a home cooked meal.
Another reason Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday is the ‘Turkey Bowl’ game. Since 8th grade, on the Friday after Thanksgiving, my friends that I played football with growing up and a bunch of friends from home take part in a legit tackle football game with offensive and defensive lines. Sometimes we get a a kid’s dad to be the referee.
