50 Best Thanksgiving Wishes and Messages for Families and Friends

When the leaves start falling and the shelves are stocked with pumpkin items at Trader Joe’s, that’s when you know that Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Unlike other holidays that are more gift-focused, Thanksgiving is centered on giving thanks for what we have and the special people in our lives. It’s a time to catch up with loved ones, sit around the table and share one of the most delicious meals of the year. Who doesn’t love endless stuffing and slices of pie? Whether you are near or far from your loved ones this Thanksgiving, there are so many ways to share just how much you care with these thoughtful Thanksgiving wishes and messages for everyone in your life.

So, before you get to carving the turkey or passing the gravy, send a card or text message to those that you are grateful for from our list. We are sharing greetings that are perfect for friends, coworkers and even for families that won’t be seeing each other this year due to the pandemic. However you spend your Thanksgiving, be sure to show your gratitude to those that we are most grateful for in our lives!
