This was Thanksgiving day in most of the United States due to the Proclamation of Pres. Roosevelt.

I was thankful to stay in bed a few extra hours this morning.

We went to church before going over home for a big Thanksgiving dinner. Marksberrys & Aunt Nan were there beside our family.

We practiced target shooting and went hunting some.

After a short supper we sat around & played "up Jenkins" till it was bedtime, then went home.

Commentary[]

1939 was the first year that Thanksgiving was fixed for the fourth Thursday of November, at the request of merchants who wanted a longer Christmas shopping season.
