Hillary Clinton lost against Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, but that has not made much difference to her supporters, who continue to root for her through thick and thin.
Ever since Trump was elected president of the United States, the former secretary of stepped out of the limelight. In fact, Clinton was seen in public only a couple of times post-election, once where a young woman walking her dog stumbled into her, and the other time when a bookstore employee in Rhode Island managed to snap a selfie with her.
However, on Thanksgiving, the former presidential candidate took to Twitter to wish everyone a “safe & Happy Thanksgiving today, & quality time with family & friends.”
Hoping everyone has a safe & Happy Thanksgiving today, & quality time with family & friends. -H— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) November 24, 2016
Of course, she had no idea that her fans were going to wish her in a very special manner. The former FLOTUS once again used the social media site to share with followers a heartwarming surprise put up by her fans.
I was greeted by this heartwarming display on the corner of my street today. Thank you to all of you who did this. Happy Thanksgiving. -H pic.twitter.com/b69mW3Oqbf— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) November 24, 2016
The photos showed a number of placards planted on the street of her and Bill Clinton’s home.
"Thank You, Hillary," "We Are Thankful for Hillary, An American Hero," "I'm With Her," read some of the signs.
Many people are even thanking her on Twitter.

The effort was particularly led by one 6-year-old boy, Liam, who had cheered on Clinton throughout the presidential election and was extremely disappointed upon her loss. His mother invited friends and family to make some signs for Clinton.
“We got some posters emailed to us and a few dropped off. Liam and I made some, too,” the unnamed woman told POLITICO.
