Gobble Gobble, Thanksgiving is coming up!

Turkey dinners, cranberries, stuffing, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie and family gatherings…It’s almost Thanksgiving which means it’s time for those family dinners, bonding time with loved ones, and of course the day after means Black Friday shopping.

Thanksgiving is celebrated as a day of giving thanks for the blessings we have experienced in the past year and for more to come.

“For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states”

Many families get together to celebrate this national holiday. Everyone celebrates by making food together and by eating a big feast together with the family. Before eating, a majority of families pray and go around the table saying what everyone is thankful for.

Typically, families stay up talking and bonding with one another until the clock strikes midnight. Once it’s midnight, the stores open and people rush in to get everything they need at low price. This day is known as Black Friday. Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving, also known as the first day of traditional Christmas shopping. Crowds of consumers are lined up at the doors to buy the best deals they could possibly get on items. Such hours may include opening as early as 12:00 am or remaining open overnight on Thanksgiving Day and beginning sale prices at midnight. Might as well get your Christmas shopping done early if prices are this great 🙂

Have a great Thanksgiving and make it one to remember 🙂
