Charlie Brown: We’ve got another holiday to worry about. It seems Thanksgiving Day is upon us.
Sally Brown: I haven’t even finished eating all of my Halloween candy.
-Charles M. Schulz
Have you finished your Halloween candy yet? Well, Thanksgiving is right around the corner and besides all the yummy food we will be grazing on what does Thanksgiving mean to you? Family gatherings, taking time to tell each other what you’re thankful for or even preparing for black Friday can be just a few ideas but I found a new idea! This Thanksgiving round up the family and make a thankful tree and show everyone how much you are thankful for.
Before preparing all the food you must decorate your house and thankful trees are a great addition to a living room as well as showing others how much you care about them during this giving season. Start by gathering a few small tree branches and then grab the kiddos and help them cut out unique leaves to add to the branches. Make sure to remember to write on the leaves what you are thankful for to let your guests look at during Thanksgiving dinner. You can always dress it up with a glass vase filled with pumpkins, squash or other autumn décor. This doesn’t just have to be a family project as you can always make a thankful tree with a church group, the office or even at school! The thankful tree can also become a family tradition that you make every thanksgiving to remind you of years past what you are thankful for and how some of your leaves may change over the years.
Here are a few thankful tips to help when making your thankful tree from Fresh 102.5!
1.) A roof over our head to protect us!
2.) Friends who love us and are always there anytime we need them.
3.) Parents; who raised us, changed our diapers, fed us, and put up with us through all our problems and still do.
4.) Grandparents! — Thanks for spoiling us!
5.) The beautiful world around us!
Have a great Thanksgiving wherever you may be and thanks as always for listening to Fresh 102.5!
