Thanksgiving is the perfect time to enjoy great food and company with family and friends. My family has a huge feast every Thanksgiving and we make sure we always take time out of our busy schedules to get together, slow down, and be thankful for all that we have. For me and my family, Thanksgiving is all about being together.

Thanksgiving is celebrated by taking time out of our busy lives to sit down with loved ones and share a meal. It’s a time to slow down and to be thankful. The cornucopia (or horn of plenty) is a symbol of abundance and nourishment and is a common sight at Thanksgiving tables across the United States. Here’s how seven nail techs interpret the cornucopia and what Thanksgiving means to them.
