RACINE, Wis., Nov. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- When friends and families can't be together at Thanksgiving, celebrating may become a little less joyful. In fact, nearly half of Americans (45 percent) say they would skip certain family traditions if they had to spend Thanksgiving alone, while nearly one in five (19 percent) would skip the holiday entirely. So this Thanksgiving, SC Johnson is launching Happy Thanksgathering™, giving families who might not be together this holiday season the chance to gather, to give thanks and to celebrate.
