Yay! It's finally fall, my favorite season. And fall means Thanksgiving is just around the corner.
Thanksgiving , as I'm sure you know, is a national holiday in both Canada (second Monday in October) and in the United States (fourth Thursday in November as set by President Lincoln). It started as a celebration giving thanks for the harvest of the previous year.
Turkey and pumpkin pie are probably the most popular foods served on Thanksgiving. Traditionally, this is the point in the blog where I'd like to insert photos of jewelry in the shape of turkeys and pies. I have neither so, I'll substitute roosters and fruits to represent turkeys and pumpkins.
And just like that, Robin Allison comes through with some turkey jewelry. These are from her collection.
The cornucopia or horn of plenty is another recognizable symbol of the day. The horn shaped holder is traditionally filled with fruit, flowers, nuts, and other items representing abundance and nourishment.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Please take a moment to click this link. It takes you to the text of George Washington's First Thanksgiving Proclamation.
