Well folks, it happened quickly this year – Holiday Season is already here.  And how do we know this? Because I can smell pumpkin pie as I type this.  Which means I’ve got to make this quick.

First off, we at MintVine would like to wish you and all your families a wonderful, safe, and cozy Thanksgiving.  Secondly, we want to say Thank You. Thank you for your participation and all the time you put in to taking our Surveys, Polls, and Offers.  Thank you for telling all your friends and facebook buddies about us and telling them how wonderful we are (hopefully).

Happy Thanksgiving!

And to show our thanks we have scoured the internet to come up with everything you might need to make your Thanksgiving a little bit easier:
