Happy Thanksgiving! Some of the biggest stars – from ARod to Jennifer Garner — got together with their families to give thanks while sharing pictures of their mouth-watering meals!
It’s time to baste the turkey, roast the chicken, bake the macaroni and cheese, and pour some cocktails because it’s Thanksgiving! Nov. 22 marks the day where people surround themselves with loved ones and take a moment to express gratitude and appreciation over what they have in life. For many celebrities, Thanksgiving has a very special meaning this year, as many stars’ homes were damaged in the fires that devastated California. For Meghan Markle, she may have been on the other side of the globe, but she made sure to bring some Thanksgiving spirit to her new home in the UK. The Duchess of Sussex visited the Hubb Community Kitchen to help prepare food for those less fortunate. While the UK doesn’t celebrate the holiday, Meghan made sure to keep Thanksgiving in her heart.
T.I. also was in the spirit of the season, as he hosted his 13th annual Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway for seniors in need at the Adamsville Recreation Center in Atlanta. After all, no one should go hungry on Thanksgiving, and Tip made sure that bellies would be full on this day. Alex Rodriguez shared a picture of him with Jennifer Lopez and their kids in bed. “Thankful for mornings like this with the ones I love most. I am truly blessed. #HappyThanksgiving to all of you and your families. #gratitude,” the MLB champion wrote.
“Thankful for you and our family,” Tamera Mowry wrote when sharing a picture of her with husband Adam Housely. “You have have been my rock. Thankful for your faith in God that inspires me to keep my faith. Thank you for calming my nerves in the middle of the night. Thank you for loving me through it all. I love you. #happythanksgiving.” Will Smith (“Throwback Thanksgiving Thursday #Thankful”), Snoop Dogg (“Thankful. Broadus Family”), Kelly Ripa (“#tbt 2011 Thanksgiving edition. So thankful for these turkeys”), and Brie Bella (“Feeling so blessed and grateful!!! Thank you Lord for everything!! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! #givethanks #thanksgiving #family #love #grateful”) shared pictures of their family, revealing what they truly are thankful for.
Because it wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without some politics, and Padma Lakshmi shared a #TBT picture with a powerful message. “As we gather for Thanksgiving today with our families and loved ones, we cannot forget that so many migrant children are still detained, separated from their families, some as young as toddlers. This is an ongoing crisis. The narrative of demonizing immigrants is unacceptable. Let’s not forget, the Pilgrims were immigrants. The caravan of people trying to seek asylum are not a threat to us- they have nothing but the clothes on their backs. If you’re able, consider donating to the @aclu_nationwide or The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (@raicestexas.) #thanksgiving #littlehands #tbt”
“So incredibly thankful for my family (immediate, extended and friends) today! I love you, Wife, and thank you for being the backbone of our family and for building an incredible empire, which I know you want Harper to take over one day… unfortunately, she wants to be a mermaid so she’ll be busy,” Armie Hammer wrote. “HAPPY FAMILY DAY EVERY DAY!” shouted DJ Khaled. “Bless up happy thanksgiving! From the Khaled family!”

“Happy thanksgiving y’all. So grateful for my family and all the love and joy we share and even more thankful for our baby Forrest who joined our wolf pack earlier this year. Hope everyone had a beautiful thanksgiving. We decided to go to the beach this year. Even though it’s a little cold😬 it’s still so peaceful and beautiful,” Jessie James Decker posted to Instagram, while Ashlee Simpson posted a picture of her with Evan Ross. “Happy Thanksgiving!!! I’m so grateful for my family and friends!!”
“So many recipes floating for Thanksgiving, but how about a new tradition?” Jennifer Garner wrote when uploading a picture of her in a pilgrim costume. “Invite a friend from a foreign land (in this case, England). Make up Thanksgiving traditions she has to follow. I dressed my darling Brit as a turkey and paraded her around the mean streets of Charleston, WV. Perhaps you could suggest Thanksgiving presents? I did, and still have the necklace to show for my excellent imagination. Thanksgiving is for family and friends, food and football—but don’t forget FUN. XXX Happy Thanksgiving!”
