Giving Thanks

Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving Day is observed in the United States on the fourth Thursday of November each year. This year's celebration will take place on November 28th. I have always loved  Thanksgiving since I was a small child. Preparations began on Thanksgiving Eve when my younger sister and I would help our mom make her special stuffing for the turkey. My job was to toast the four loaves of bread needed to make the dressing. The toasted bread would then be torn into small cubes and simmered in herbs and spices. Onions, celery, and sausage would be added to make the best turkey dressing ever! The mouthwatering aroma would permeate the house all night long and into the early morning hours of Thanksgiving Day.

What could possibly be better than watching the  Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade while snuggled on the couch in my pj's and savoring the smell of the turkey roasting in the oven? Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins would begin to arrive in the late afternoon for a large family gathering and the shared meal. Oh such special memories of times past! Everyone would dress in adorable Thanksgiving attire and heartwarming family stories would be told... some old, some new. Some Thanksgiving Day celebrations even included the joyous news that a new little turkey would be joining the family! And if you need a special shirt for a special announcement this Turkey Day, we've got you covered!

Wishing everyone a memorable day of Thanks from all of us at Zoey's Attic Personalized Gifts!
