We all have so much to be thanks for! Some are less fortunate and others and did not have a meal, a job, or family to share this day with. They still somehow made it through another Thanksgiving, being grateful for what they do have, and life itself. No matter how bleak it may seems to some, we can all still count our blessings, and be more positive. Working on Thanksgiving, helping others, who could not go home to family or had no family,reminded me of my blessings, and gave me a chance to be an enlightment to others.

Although I worked Thanksgiving (3p to 11:30P shift), I enjoyed a quiet holiday. I helped my daughter cook the evening before, (cooking until 4 am in the morning). My family brought me plates of food on the job. Day shift cooked a Thanksgiving dinner and brought to work, and we on evening shift enjoyed it very much, I took my food home that my family brought me to work. Friday, I was off from work, so I slept on and off through the day, watch television and enjoyed my Thanksgiving dinner from my family.

This poll would be more meaningful if it took into account that people spend their holiday doing more than one thing. To be forced to select only one is silly. for example if I choose celebrate Hannukah why does this imply that I don't celebrate Thanksgiving and vise versa. Also who believes that people are not also getting an early start on shopping? Sorry but this is a silly survey.

Thanks for your comments. This was meant to be a fun survey and allowing multiple responses would have been a great option. The "leave a comment" button does give people the opportunity to share additional thoughts. Feel free to send a suggestion for a survey at hopkinshappening@jhmi.edu.

I will be celebrating with my family. We all go to my aunt's house and have a really great time with other family and friends. We say a prayer led by my 89-year old aunt after which everyone gets to say what they are thankful for. This year, like all years I am thankful for my family who keep me grounded and my husband and kids. I am thankful for breath of life as we are not guaranteed another day. God makes that possible! I pray for the less fortunate and hope that they will be blessed with a warm meal on Thanksgiving.
