We gather together...


In the USA, we celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow. It is celebrated on the 4th Thursday in November every year. Families get together for a dinner which usually includes turkey and all the traditional foods that go with the meal.  There are many ways people celebrate...from religious... to watching football all day on television...to running in road races...and even going to the movies after dinner.  But, essentially it is a day to feel gratitude.

It is a beloved holiday here and also is the beginning of the holiday season--which includes Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. For a few weeks out of the year it is a time of festivity.  Hopefully, it will be a time of charity and giving...no matter how one celebrates.




Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Weekend!

And as always,

 enjoy the day!

I always have such a hard time proving I'm not a robot, lol!

I'm looking forward to this Christmas holiday. To all the little bright and merry things.

I hope your Thanksgiving was a wonderful one Helen, and I hope your weather moderates some soon!
