Complete with the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, turkey trot 5Ks, football on TV, board games, lots of delicious food, and quality family time, Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays. However, it can also come with a lot of preparation and hard work, as those feasts don’t make themselves! Or do they?
