Unfortunately, stuffing your mouth with mashed potatoes isn't the answer your Aunt Peggy is looking for when she asks you what you're thankful for this year. And if you can't think straight with all that Tryptophan, you can just steal our answers.
Aside from the invention of cranberry sauce, we're thankful for ...

Adam Levine, PEOPLE's newly anointed Sexiest Man Alive, admitted that "becoming this cool, confident and seductive has been quite a journey."
"A lot of people trivialize this sort of thing. They say it's shallow and think it's just a media stunt used to sell magazines and perpetuate the image of Hollywood being based on looks.
