Happy Thanksgiving 2019! While we may not get to stand on a street corner and watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade go by, or enjoy a day off work to indulge in a huge feast with our families, those of us in the UK can still celebrate Thanksgiving with some food and good old social media sentiment.

The US holiday, which originated back in 1621 in what is now New England, is all about remembering what you have to be thankful for.

The tradition of showing gratitude for your good fortune on Thanksgiving comes from the first Pilgrims in America, who showed their gratitude to the Native Americans who taught them how to farm the land and helped them survive, by inviting them to a feast of thanks.

In lieu of a huge turkey feast with all the trimmings, here are some quotes, memes and messages of thanks to share today in celebration of Thanksgiving.
