We'll admit it. We're not sure why India celebrates Thanksgiving with such great gusto. But we're very happy to also admit that since there's food involved, we're up for any party! After all, there's something we all need to be thankful for. But we all have gratitude to show for something — be it your family, a job, home, a person, new clothes, or the new Avengers film, so there’s no hard feelings in celebrating this kind of holiday. So, Happy Turkey And Pie Eating Day!
