The holiday season is the time to sit down and really think about the things that are important in life, whether it's family or friends or just a good old-fashioned turkey dinner. For fans of The Walking Dead, however, the holiday tableaux might be a little bit different. In place of a group of family and friends, there might instead be an alliance of folks from all different walks of life joined together in case of a sudden zombie apocalypse. In place of turkey with stuffing, there might be dried opossum and mystery cookies. In place of telling of traditional Thanksgiving tales, there might be recaps of favorite episodes. Frankly, a Walking Dead Thanksgiving sounds like it could be a whole lot of fun, and why not? There are plenty of reasons to be thankful for The Walking Dead this year. Here are nine of the biggest.

Andrew
Rick Shaved
Andrew Lincoln/Rick’s beard was practically a character of its own. In fact, the first five seasons of the show can be seen as a coming of age tale for Rick’s facial hair. What began as a few stray hairs on his cheeks grew out into a bushy mess of gray and brown that threatened to swallow up his face.

Quite aside from the likelihood of a whole new strain of the zombie virus mutating in that mess, the risk of Daryl accidentally killing Rick by mistaking the beard for a particularly scraggly forest critter for eatin’ was becoming all too real. Thankfully, the beard is now gone due to access to the bathroom facilities at Alexandria. The only shame is that The Walking Dead missed out on the chance of sponsorship from Brillo. It’s not every show that will obscure the lead’s face with something resembling steel wool scrub pads.
