Of course, your Thanksgiving menu is important, but the holiday is so much more than just piling our plates. Thanksgiving is a time to show your gratitude for your friends, family, and all that you have in life. These heartfelt Thanksgiving quotes will remind everyone of the reason for the season. This list is full of thoughtful words that would make for a great holiday toast or even as a nice Thanksgiving caption on social media. The day can be quite hectic, especially if you're hosting this year's festivities, so make sure you read these Thanksgiving quotes for friends and family before November 28, and then save them to read aloud to your guests on Thanksgiving day. Or when your day starts to get stressful, just take a moment to scroll through this roundup. We especially love the quote: "Give thanks not just on Thanksgiving Day, but every day of your life. Appreciate and never take for granted all that you have," which was said by Catherine Pulsifer. It reminds us to be mindful and thankful of all we do have. We also love these words by Daniel Humm: "What I love about Thanksgiving is that it’s purely about getting together with friends or family and enjoying food. It’s really for everybody, and it doesn’t matter where you’re from." That quote truly encompasses how special the holiday is.
