Dear [Recipients Name],

I am writing just to say a simple thank you for the wonderful Thanksgiving dinner yesterday.

It is always amazing to spend time with family on occasions like this. I had a good time, especially when helping mom to prepare the food and giving dad a hand with fixing the television and the funny conversations we had. The kids loved the food, do you mind sharing the recipe with me?

All in all, it was marvelous, and I'm immensely grateful. I can't wait to host you at our house for the next Thanksgiving.
