Thank You — and Happy Thanksgiving 2023 to You.

Time to gobble the gobbler — and be thankful.

Please allow me to wish you a very happy Thanksgiving holiday today, Thursday, November 23, 2023 — unless you happen to be Canadian, in which case you already celebrated Thanksgiving on Monday, October 9, 2023.

Thank You — and Happy Thanksgiving 2023 to You

This year presented me with even more adversity than I experienced last year. Two of many examples of what I faced over the past year is that I lost several people in my life — including one friend who spent the last couple of Thanksgiving holidays with me and committed suicide last month and another friend who passed away to whom this article was dedicated.

Despite that adversity this year, the future is looking brighter. I am once again thankful for:

  • Family, friends, colleagues, acquaintances, and loved ones who have been and are a part of my life — especially whenever I have needed their support — who care about me and want to see me happy
  • Having had the opportunity to travel around the world
  • Having managed to not yet skip a year without flying as a passenger aboard an airplane
  • Being in good health, as I suffer from no allergies and still to this day do not take any medication; and I realize how rare is that gift — and I wish I can bestow that gift upon everyone and eradicate disease, illness and suffering
  • The opportunity to help other people in many ways — and to give back to the community
  • Every time you patronize the companies which advertise at The Gate With Brian Cohen — as well as the affiliate links which I include in some of the articles that I write — and I may not always write glowing reports about them; but at least you can be assured that I remain honest about what I write

Speaking for myself, there are a number of things in life for which I am thankful — but there are times where I feel that I do not express my thankfulness enough. My hope and wish once again for this Thanksgiving is that the list of things for which I am thankful will cause you to pause for a moment and reflect on the people and things in your life for which you are thankful — and please feel free to share them in the Comments section below if you feel compelled to do so.

Last — but certainly not least; and I cannot reiterate this enough — I am thankful for you. You are the reason why The Gate With Brian Cohen exists and why it keeps evolving after greater than 17 years. I learn from you whenever you take the time to comment — especially when you do not agree with what I write or when you correct me on information which I mistakenly posted — and I read every single comment posted by you. I learn from your advice and experiences…

…and there are few things which are more gratifying to me than reading how I have been able to help you either plan a trip or save money or avoid a negative experience — or even simply entertain you.

I may not say it often enough; but I am thankful for you all year long — and I am honored to have the opportunity to be a small part of your life whenever you choose to read The Gate With Brian Cohen.

Final Boarding Call

May you and yours have the best Thanksgiving holiday yet this year — replete with plenty of joy, happiness, success, loved ones and delicious food — and may you be truly thankful for all that you have and experienced.

Thank you — again and again and again — from the bottom of my heart.

  1. A small thing that I’m thankful for is the what is wrong with this photo series despite not finding whether the answers are posted.

    I am thankful for CBC News Airport Rush game online, which I have scored as high as 46.

    1. I gave up on that game some time ago, derek. 46 is a tough score to achieve.

      I have been negligent about posting the answers to the What Is Wrong W.th This Photograph series of articles.

      I will get back on track with that. Please accept my apologies…

  2. Happy Thanksgiving! I am thankful for gingko nut season. They fall and are abundantly found all over historic/touristy parts of Philadelphia, Sonoma Square, California.
    Recently, I found a fruiting tree in my own hometown. Gathering, cleaning, and breaking open the shells before cooking them (they are toxic uncooked) is a lot of work; however, I would never buy them pre-cleaned or pre-shelled in a can if I could get them fresh off the tree.

    I have the same feeling about travel, which for me involves looking for places to visit, learning from travel writers, and making it happen within my budget. My favorite article of yours has been the walking instructions from LAS to town. I walk everywhere and always encourage people who are able to do so and in a safe environment to opt for walking.
