    May your stuffing be tasty,
    May your turkey be plump,
    May your potatoes and gravy
    Have nary a lump.
    May your yams be delicious,
    And your pies take the prize,
    And may your Thanksgiving dinner
    Stay off your thighs!

    Sharing Thanksgiving makes it twice as fun, with half the calories!


    You are Forgiven for your Happiness and your Successes Only if you Generously Consent to Share them.

Thanksgiving is a yearly opportunity across North America to celebrate family and friends, share in a fabulous meal, and appreciate all that is good and valuable in one’s life.

Many at Fermilab, though, are far from friends and family.

Please share Thanksgiving with a new friend.

The goal is to ensure that everyone has a friendly place to be, a meal to eat, and good company and conversation to enjoy.
