Woman Named Happy Thanksgiving Gets Two Holidays In One

MINNEAPOLIS (UPI) — A Minneapolis doctor preparing to celebrate her birthday on Thanksgiving Day said her parents, “hippies,” named her Happy Thanksgiving Reynolds.

Reynolds, 43, a family physician, said her parents gave her the unusual name when she was born on Thanksgiving when the holiday fell on the same date 43 years ago, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported Monday.

“I was the child of hippies,” Reynolds said.

She said they decided the universe was helping them name their newborn.

“It was total universe magic time for them,” Reynolds said.

Reynolds said she has learned to love her name, which she described as an “unintentional gift.”

She said she has gotten job interviews just because employers were curious to meet someone named Happy Thanksgiving.

“I’m someone you’re not going to forget based on the name,” she said.
