Fun Fact:Gratitude can literally help you reduce the chances of heart disease. If you don't believe us, click that link and read more about it.You can be grateful for the luxuries of life, your family, friends, love, beauty, pimps & hoes, parties, craft beers (Lord knows we are thankful for them), and/ or simply the air you breathe every day. While this is similar to Christmas in some ways, it doesn't come with the added pressure of buying presents or making impressions through gifts.You literally just get together with your family and friends and have an incredible meal. Traditionally the meal includes, but is not limited to: turkey, mashed potatoes, yams, pumpkin pie, and booze. Booze comes in many forms: wine, beer, liquor, whatever it is, it goes down and goes down quick.

Thanksgiving football provided one of the funnier/ more memorable NFL moments with Mark Sanchez's "butt fumble". If you don't know what we're talking about, here it is... You're welcome. :)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAp57G1hLn0

The History of Thanksgiving

So you know what happens for the holiday, but what gives? Why did this day even happen in the first place? This neat video synopsis (posted below) provides a little background, and we can't claim that it is 100% historically accurate, but it will give you a better idea of why it is a holiday.

In a nutshell, after the colonists from Britain spent some time treating the Native Americans less-than-affably, they had a meal together to settle their differences. They shared foods from their respective culinary backgrounds, but let's be honest, Britain is not exactly known for it's food. The country has a lot of redeeming qualities, but Shepard's Pie is not one of them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=faUYJ9fMiGg

Stay tuned for more details, as this is going to be an annual tradition at CocoVail. We want it to be a time to bring family and friends in remembering what is awesome about this thing called life. We'll provide some traditional grub as well as some drinks to help wash down the deliciousness. There's certainly a lot to be thankful for, and we're looking forward to celebrating with you and yours on this Thanksgiving. In the words of AC, our Co-Founder, it's going to be "huge!"
