rockwell_thanksgivingFrom all of us at The Art of Manliness, we hope those of you here in America have a very Happy Thanksgiving. Eat some turkey, have a slice of pie (0r two), and make sure to get out and throw the football around to burn off some of that stuffing.

In between eating and watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, give the video below a quick view. It’s an old educational film from 1950 called “A Day of Thanksgiving.” A wise Ward Clever-like dad explains to his children the real reason for Thanksgiving: Gratitude. Enjoy!

What are you grateful for this Thanksgiving? Let us know in the comments.

I am thankful that is was born an American. I love the rest of the world; traveling, exploring & learning. But, the best part of any trip I’ve ever taken – is setting foot back on the greatest country on earth, returning to my home and family. Knowing that what ever happens beyond our borders, the best dedicated and well trained troops in human history are ready to do battle to protect what we have. I guess I’m thankful for the safety & security of what we often take for granted everyday.

I got a job after months of unemployment. A pretty good job, too. So I am thankful for that.

I am thankful for my family and friends that serve our nation during these dangerous days.

I am thankful for Buttlerball turkey in a Reynolds Cooking bag. EVO , Salt, pepper , garlic and onion powder 3 hours at 350 and you have a fall off the bone tender moist Golden brown turkey.

I am also thankful my Dad found and gave me this week my Grandpa’s Gem SE razor handle.
