CHAPEL HILL –  Thanksgiving is a holiday celebrated on different dates by five different countries and territories.

Though many here in Chapel Hill-Carrboro celebrate it, some celebrate it differently. Sometimes there’s turkey involved; often people spend it with their families.

Today, we invite you in as our family and say, Happy Thanksgiving.

***Listen to a Few Locals’ Thoughts About Thanksgiving***

Those were the words of Carrboro Mayor-Elect, Lydia Lavelle, North Carolina Senator, Valerie Foushee, North Carolina Representative, Graig Meyer, and UNC Athletic Director, Bubba Cunningham sharing their ideas of the holiday and some of their special memories.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
