A Day for Sharing and Giving Thanks

A Day for Sharing and Giving Thanks

Family and friends. Marshmallows on sweet potatoes. Green bean casserole with french–fried onions on top. Pie. A food–induced nap, followed by more pie. Football all day. Ah, Thanksgiving! It's a time to take a step back from our day–to–day and appreciate what and who we have in our lives.

Each family has its own Thanksgiving traditions, and being at home — yours or someone else's — often is one of them. Home and family are central to what we do at Freddie Mac: Help families rent, buy, and keep their homes. We're proud that we've made home possible nearly 73 million times since we were founded in 1970.

We asked families across the nation, "What does home mean to you?" Find out what they said.

Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving, wherever and however you celebrate!
