|Cook a feast no family could fully eat, recite prayers no family could fully believe, and acknowledge a frightful history no family could fully comprehend.|
|— Cecil Palmer|
Thanksgivings in Night Vale consist of a traditional feast, and a Thanksgiving Day Dead Citizens Impersonation Contest. In 2013, Thanksgiving Day festivities also included giving thanks to the Brown Stone Spire for all that it had done, and all that it had mercifully not done.
In 2015, Cecil's plans for Thanksgiving were to spend it with Carlos, his sister Abby, her daughter Janice and Steve Carlsberg at his house. Earl Harlan and his son were also invited, but it is not known if they decided to come or not.
