Thanks for Thanksgiving

If you look at my blogger profile, you'll find that I list Thanksgiving College Days as my favorite time of the school year. Although the reason I give is that my family visits, I enjoy many other things about that time, also.

Given how often I write about food in my posts, you can probably guess the first of those reasons. Four Winds and Varsity put out food that we don't get any other time of the year, in true Thanksgiving fashion. Turkey and mashed potatoes are accompanied by cornbread stuffing and cranberry sauce, followed by several varieties of pie. And that's just dinner. Thanksgiving breakfast usually features cinnamon rolls, bacon, and breakfast croissants, but students can also choose to take a sleep-in box breakfast and some extra rest instead.

I also enjoy the activities that take the place of regular classes. After breakfast, students and guests attend the Thanksgiving Praise Service to sing and thank God for His blessings. The Turkey Bowl follows, and although my collegian has not yet made it to the Turkey Bowl since I've been here, I still enjoy the time outdoors with my family as we watch the game and enjoy some donuts from one of the concession stands.

Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays both at home and at college, and I hope that if you're here for Thanksgiving, whether as a student or as a College Days guest, that you will enjoy it as well.
