WHY DO WE CELEBRATE?


Lou Whitmire, a reporter in Mansfield, Ohio, asked the all important question "Why do we celebrate Thanksgiving?" to students at Sherman Elementary school. Here are a few of the answers he got:



Jamie Copley, 7, said people celebrate Thanksgiving because it’s the season where everyone joins together.


Christina McGuire, 7, said, "It’s a good month."


Kamozye Bowles, 6, said people celebrate Thanksgiving because "it’s a happy day."

"My granny cooks and it’s good," she said.


Bradley Ernsberger, 6, said he celebrates Thanksgiving because he is thankful for a lot of things. "I’m thankful for my friends, my limo ride for selling the most candy, my Superman costume I got to wear at Halloween and my little pumpkin I got," he said.


Selina McGregor, 6, said she knows why people all get together to celebrate on Thanksgiving Day.

"It’s a wonderful year and a good time to share all that food," she said.


"I love pumpkin pie," she added.
