Thanksgiving like many American holidays has been streamlined into a day spent eating large amounts of turkey, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie. As most Americans learn in elementary school, Thanksgiving was first celebrated to thank God for enabling Plymoth Rock pilgrims to endure a harsh Winter throught the help of Native Americans. In fact, most of the "traditional" Thanksgiving feast items were not present for the first Thanksgiving meal of 1621. Ironically the first Thanksgiving were spent fasting rather than overindulging in Autumn food staples.

Unlike Christmas and Easter, typically Thanksgiving involves no gift-giving or extravagant galas. In comparision, most individuals invest significantly less energy into Thanksgiving. I would like to encourage everyone to spend some time thinking about the most important areas of their lives. Take the intiative and find a means to express your life priorities. Feel free to tell us what you are most thankful for on the comment wall.

As I have mentioned in previous posts, D&E Casino Services prioritizes family. As a family-based company, promoting familial interests is not only innate but essential. Staff within the office and shop are all family members and family-friends. Familial staffing ensures the maintenance of company integrity and cohesion. Everyday within the office is enertaining but productive. The efficiency of deliveries and event operations, that is a product of nonverbal communication and familial understanding, is truly amazing. With that said, this Thanksgiving, I am thankful for my family and a working environment that enables me to enjoy their company in and out of the office.

Happy Thanksgiving!
