30 Days of Thanksgiving

If you’ve known me very long, you’ll know that I love Thanksgiving and it really bothers me that people spend so much money and time decorating for Halloween & Christmas & completely skip over Thanksgiving.


When my girls were little I started collecting Thanksgiving stories & poems and we would read them every day for the few weeks before Thanksgiving. I continue adding to that collection and a few years ago put together a book of 30 days worth of poems, hymns, stories, and Scriptures about giving thanks. CurrClick now sells it on their website.


One year I had a YahooGroup list and sent something to my readers every day in November.


This year I want to try something new. Since I’ve started a blog & have a lot of people following it (72 followers as of today), I thought I’d post something every day that I’m thankful for and encourage others to do the same. I’m also going to post on my facebook & twitter accounts. This will allow me to share some of the photos I’ve been taking & editing on Photoshop, too.


I’ve created 2 buttons if you’d like to add one to your blog. Please let me know if you do & if you’re going to participate. I’d love to point people to other blogs that are focused on Thanksgiving this month.


NEXT month we’ll celebrate Christmas!

Can I still participate even though I am from Down Under!? We love Thanksgiving at our house and we celebrate it every year. I have even learnt how to make pumpkin and sweet potato pies! This is such a lovely idea.
Best wishes, NM.

I read about your month of thanksgiving over on BJ's sweet nothings and thought it was a very neat idea. I've prescheduled most of my posts already but I'm going to go back and add a "thanks" for each one and join you. I'm doing this because I am SOOOOOOO blessed by our Savior in my life, sugar. Beyond anything I could comprehend, my sweet chick.

Nice to meet you. We're from the east bay...transplanted to Idaho several years ago now.

xoxo,
Connie

While Halloween is a fave of mine and I love Christmas, I always feel as though I am one of the few people who doesn't just let it pass by! I'm so glad that Dawn over at 4:53am has this posted on her blog. I'm joining in! I've added your button to my left hand column (which links back to this post for info when you click on it). Thanks for starting this!
