Wishing You a Very Happy Thanksgiving!

Over the upcoming holiday many Americans will travel to see loved ones, cooking amazing meals, watching football, consider what they are thankful, as well as many other traditions that have developed during the holiday season. We wanted to take this time to express our gratitude to our customers, vendors, manufacturers, partners, associates, and all others that help make our organization what it is. Without all of you, we wouldn’t be where we are today.

To celebrate Thanksgiving this year, we have compiled a list of some of America’s most beloved traditions.

  1. Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade  - This cherished celebration started in 1924 and originated as a celebration of Macy’s flagship store in Manhattan. Now, it has become one of America’s biggest parades, and something millions of people look forward to watching every year. Now, many cities around the United States, have their own variation of an elaborate Thanksgiving Day Parade.
  2. Turkey Trot – Turkey Trot’s are family fun events that occur every year around the Thanksgiving Holiday. The first turkey trot took place over 100 years ago in Buffalo, New York as an 8K race with only 6 runners. Today, there are over 700 races across the country, and it has become a yearly tradition for many families.
  3. Football – Many football games are played on Thanksgiving Day, and it has become a tradition for families across the United States to watch football during their Thanksgiving Day festivities. One example of this is the Detroit Lions, who since 1934 have played on Thanksgiving Day.  
  4. Breaking a Wishbone  - breaking the ‘V’ shaped bone from a turkey is a tradition that many families include in their holiday festivities. Two guests will make wishes in their heads, before breaking the wishbone in half. Tradition has it that the person who ends up with the larger end of the bone, will have their wish granted.

Our offices will be closed November 23 & 24 so our associates have a chance to celebrate with their families. We will return to normal business hours on Monday, November 27. Happy Thanksgiving!
