All across the country, people are celebrating Thanksgiving. But what you are thankful for and how you celebrate can be quite different. We went out to get some local thoughts on what people in the southeast are thankful for, and what they are looking forward to eating this long weekend.

Warren shared that he is most thankful for his family and his job and is looking forward to eating all the Thanksgiving classics. 

"Turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce. My mom does up a huge table of food."

Trina added, "Definitely turnkey. Dressing, potatoes, cranberries." She is thankful for her health and her family.

Lisa was most thankful for her family and friends, especially her kids and husband, and has a great list of food she's looking forward to. 

"Turkey, dressing, ham, perogies, mashed potatoes, gravy."

Janet, on the other hand, doesn't know what she'll be having yet. 

"Usually turkey, but I'm not doing that this year. My daughter's coming from Regina and she said she's going to cook when she gets here so I'm going to put my feet up and play with the kids."

Cole's favourite thing to eat this weekend is stuffing and he's most thankful for his family. 

"They're the most important people to me in the world and I care for them very dearly."

"It's got to be the stuffing, I love the stuffing."

The kids got into it too, sharing what they are thankful for.

"My puppy that loves me," said  Quinn, "and my fish, and my home."

Boston was thankful for his toys. 

From all of us here at Discover Estevan, Happy Thanksgiving!
