“Lets not skip Thanksgiving 11.22.2012”


I for one LOVE the holiday season! I love decorating for Christmas and listening to Holiday music.

But Thanksgiving is considered part of the broader holiday season!


We CAN enjoy it also!




Over the next couple of weeks, I am going to share  some “Thanksgiving Tidbits” and some wonderful thoughts and prints about Gratitude!

Here are a few fun facts about Thanksgiving.


From Wikipedia:

Thanksgiving Day is a holiday celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada. Thanksgiving is celebrated each year on the second Monday of October in Canada {I never knew that!} and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States. Because of the longstanding traditions of the holiday, the celebration often extends to the weekend {Black Friday-YES!} that falls closest to the day it is celebrated. Several other places around the world observe similar celebrations. Historically, Thanksgiving had roots in religious and cultural tradition. Today, Thanksgiving is primarily celebrated as a secular holiday.

Thanksgiving, or Thanksgiving Day, has officially been an annual tradition since 1863, when, during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of “Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens,” to be celebrated on Thursday, November 26 As a federal and popular holiday in the U.S., Thanksgiving is one of the major holidays of the year. Together with Christmas and the New Year, Thanksgiving is a part of the broader holiday season.


So lets NOT skip Thanksgiving this year because…

There is




something to be Thankful for!


Here’s a really fun printable as a reminder to be THANKFUL!

  3. Hi there i am kavin, its my first occasion to commenting anyplace, when i
    read this post i thought i could also create comment due to this sensible paragraph.

  4. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a
    blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
