It was Thanksgiving Day. The Patriots and the Lions were clashing head to head in Detroit. Both teams had their throwback uniforms on and were in the holiday spirit. The Patriots were losing. Would they pull out a win?
Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for what you have. You celebrate with food, family, and friends. Maybe you watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade or your team's football game. The food is the best part, though. Smells of roasting turkey and pumpkin pie seem to find their way throughout the whole house. My Thanksgiving was plentiful. We had a variety of foods throughout the whole house with a roaring fire going. I even made an apple dish with whipped cream. Of course, we had chips and dip. Chips and dip are addicting. Don't eat too much though, or else you won't be hungry for dinner.
The Patriots were catching up. They had some good running plays and even an interception or two. It seemed like every time the Patriots caught up with the Lions, the Lions always scored more points. Soon, it was half time. Could they ever pull it off?
The most common main dish at Thanksgiving is turkey. Maybe, some people roast a ham. Lots of veggies follow as well. There are mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, a green bean casserole, turnips, and some squash. After you stuff yourself with dinner, unbuckle your belt and leave room for dessert. Pies, cookies, and cupcakes are common. The desserts are my favorite part. Afterward, you just get to hang out with relatives and friends.
The next day after Thanksgiving is Black Friday -- the shopping day. All the stores have sales and there are great prices. You have to wake up early; otherwise, everything you want will be gone.
It was the fourth quarter. A few seconds left and the Patriots would win. Were people in the crowd counting down? The clock suddenly flashed to 0 and the game was over. The Patriots won. Thanksgiving was half-way over. Happy Thanksgiving!
