Things to be Thankful For

Halloween is officially over and as November rolls in Thanksgiving is the topic on the mind.

November and December are the time of year when people have things to be thankful for and holiday traditions are celebrated. For example, my holiday tradition is baking a pie every year with my mom and watching movies with hot chocolate in hand. I also am thankful for my family and friends and also for running.
