Before you celebrate, remember-ate, all the things that make life worth it. Pics and videos inside!

The fallen leaves, and the brush of fall, give way to pleasant family memories. Before the turkey carving, and the drinking, or the veagan dish you'll guilt trip your family into, take a knee and think of all the things you're thankful for.

And it isn't "prayer" if you're doing it in a public school, it's just called "thinking time" there.

If you're stumped why life is still worth living, remember this list, during this time of giving,
