Happy Thanksgiving! It is hard to believe that it is already that time of year again and less than a month until Christmas. This is the 478th year that Thanksgiving will be celebrated with the first one taking place at Plymouth Colony in 1621 as a way of showing thanks for the harvest. And now has become a time when we gather with family and friends to express gratitude and eat turkey or tofurkey, depending on your preference. I have been collecting responses from various actors, singers, celebrities, and others in the Hollywood community to see what their Thanksgiving plans are and what they are most thankful for-and here is what they said:
Dancing with the Stars alum Joey Lawrence:
Thanksgiving Plans: With family, at home. Most Thankful for: Health, safety, being able to wake up everyday in the greatest country in the world.
