Happy Thanksgiving, EN! As is tradition on Turkey Day, we’re taking a look back on our posts from years past. It’s hard to believe this is our sixth year! From John’s very first Thanksgiving post in 2009 to last year’s hilarious roundup of Thanksgiving traditions, looking back on how far we’ve come makes us very thankful for your loyalty. Cheers to you!

And I know what you’re all thinking: What have we cooked up to celebrate Thanksgiving this year? You’ll have to keep checking back to find out! Here’s a hint: It involves John dressed in a turkey costume. And yes, it’s as hilarious as it sounds. We’ll also have our updated guide to Black Friday shopping going up later in the day. From the EN family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!

2013: EN Asks: What’s Your Favorite Thanksgiving Tradition?

“The red wine has been known to flow like the salmon of the Capistrano. This occasionally leads to some notable athletic contests, such as brother-on-brother form tackling and Greco-Roman wrestling. Injuries are common, though a dislocated shoulder and bite marks have  thankfully been the worst of them to date.”
