What Thanksgiving means to kids

Discover what children truly think of the holiday
With very distinct and different visions of what Thanksgiving will be like at their homes and how they will spend the day, a group of 5 and 6-year-olds at Little Best Friends Christian Childcare Center pondered the meaning of the holiday and what they will do with their day at home.
While they couldn’t decide on many things they all shared the same excitement to divulge with each other what they would be doing on Thanksgiving Day.
Ennis Daily News: What kinds of food will you be eating for Thanksgiving?
Roszlyn Binford: I will be eating turkey that my mommy makes and some pumpkin pie.
Jordan Koscielniak: I will be eating turkey and ham. We have ham too because turkey tastes like chicken.
Jennifer Guest: I will have some turkey and pumpkin pie with ice cream.
Grace Agnew: I will have turkey and some pie but I don’t think I will eat pumpkin pie.
Cooper Howell: I will have turkey and pumpkin pie because I like that.
