Giving Thanks

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, a day we all look forward to - whether we are gathering with friends and family to share a turkey dinner, or planning to watch our favorite teams play football.  What started in 1621 as a feast to give thanks for the harvest grew to a national holiday in 1863 with President Abraham Lincoln's Thanksgiving day proclamation.

A lot has changed since that first feast of wild game, shellfish and pumpkin. One thing hasn't - the common thread that has run through the centuries from that first celebration to the present is the thankfulness we feel.  We asked Team Escape what they are thankful for, and have included the responses below.

I am thankful for my wonderful husband and precious children... and that I get to work for such an amazing place with fantastic coworkers!
