Thanksgiving is often an overlooked holiday. Sandwiched between Halloween and Christmas, Thanksgiving does not usually get its due credit.
In honor of Thanksgiving, and all it has to offer as its own special holiday, here are 5 reasons why Thanksgiving is the best holiday!
1. You get a break from school.

2. Family and Friends
Thanksgiving is a great time to catch up with family, especially out-of-towners. And all your friends from the neighborhood are on thanksgiving break, too, so if you do not get to see them during the school semester, Thanksgiving break is the perfect time to catch up!

4. No obligations of gifts
Thanksgiving is not like Christmas- you are not pressured to buy anyone gifts. Maybe you bring a pie to dinner, but that is so much easier than Christmas.
5. The semester is almost over
After Thanksgiving, everyone dreads finals-but keep in mind that the stress of the semester is almost over!
