As we come to the end of this November week, Thanksgiving is in the air! The fourth Thursday of November is loved for the simplicity of reflecting on what is good about life. The first Thanksgiving was four hundred years ago in 1621, when colonists in Plymouth, Massachusetts shared the autumn harvest with the Wampanoag tribe. Two hundred and forty-two years later Abraham Lincoln made it an official National Holiday during the Civil War, hoping to bring healing to the torn nation. Since that proclamation, it has been a yearly holiday with a slight shift from the final Thursday to the fourth Thursday in November 1939.
The modern-day Thanksgiving holiday maintains the original tradition of gathering with family and friends to celebrate the blessings of life. The foodies in our lives plan, strategize and conspire in order to offer a feast of delights. The Tri-State offers the perfect setting with the chilly weather that inspires a cozy fire and the bountiful locally-raised food that inspires the chefs of the land. Local groceries, bakeries, and restaurants offer top-quality ingredients and prepared foods for at-home feasts. And a few local restaurants are open to serve those who prefer a restaurant setting. Here’s a list of some Thanksgiving-themed offerings in the area, should you need any help making this day special.
We wish you a wonderful holiday. We are grateful for all of you who are a part of our world!
