New York kids answer: What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

Thanksgiving is a time for families to get together to eat delicious turkey dinners and say thanks. We asked kids in New York "what are you thankful for?"

2/6

Griffin, 4, from Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn says: "I'm thankful for red apples. The green ones will make you sick."

3/6

5/6

Oliver, 5, from Midtown says: "I am thankful for my puppy Jedi and Friday night dinners with my family"

6/6

Emily, 11, from Murray Hill says: "I am thankful for my mom, who is letting me get a cell phone, my dad, who over-explains math problems, my sister, who listens to my problems in the dark at 11pm and is a fellow musical theatre lover, and my BFFs, who make
school survivable."
