Remember that feeling you used to get as a kid the night before Christmas? I get that feeling for a solid week leading up to Thanksgiving.
Why? Because Thanksgiving is hands-down the best holiday ever invented.
The Pilgrims, or whoever, should be commended for coming up with a holiday with such an awesome premise: Be thankful for what you have, hang out with friends and family, and eat some delicious food.
I’m counting the days. (10).
There are a few Thanksgiving related items below, and at least one deal this week that involves trading a donut for a discount on services (awesome). Here’s what’s new this week.
