With the end of the semester drawing near, students anxiously wait for the final break before Christmas. For the first time in recent past, Thanksgiving break will be a full week off, Nov. 23-27.

As the weather becomes colder and the colors of fall fade, warm coats and sweaters await Thanksgiving Day. Since school has changed thanksgiving week to a nine-day break, students have begun sharing their favorite memories of this special time of the year. Some share unforgettable Thanksgiving moments which they cherish for the rest of their lives.

The Feather wants to encourage students and readers to submit their opinions in the comment section of their favorite moment during this time of thanksgiving. Please take the time read the comments and type in your own most embarrassing moments, favorite meals or best Thanksgiving memories below. These will be updated numerous times before Thanksgiving.
