    Thanksgiving is finally here. And with it comes a turkey dinner and spending time with those we love. But it’s also a time to reflect on the things that make us thankful.

    From food to family to friends, here’s a list of things celebrities, presidential candidates and others are thankful for this Thanksgiving.

    Laverne Cox had a lot to be thankful for, including her support network and her career.

    Boy band One Direction showed they're grateful for their fans, tweeting, "Happy Thanksgiving to all our US fans!" Hugh Jackman, who's kicking off his new stage show "Broadway to Oz," thanked his fans for messages of "support and love." "To all celebrating Thanksgiving-have an awesome day," he wrote in a tweet.  

    Family topped the list for Tori Spelling, Danielle Steel, Hailey Duff, Conan O’Brien and Republican presidential candidate, George Pataki.
