This is my favorite day of the year! We’ll begin the day with my baked eggs breakfast, have some nibbles through the parades and football games, and enjoy our turkey dinner in the early evening. I promised a photo of the pilgrims with the little mini quilt from Autumn Jubilee a few years back. I put them with the little quilt on a stand with a pumpkin topper, a little turkey and rust color candles in clear depression glass candlesticks with silk flower candle rings.
The Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade is a tradition in our home, to be enjoyed with hot cups of coffee while we feel the magic of the holiday season beginning. Our local channel will also show our Asheville Christmas parade which actually was held about ten days ago. I wish the networks would still show other parades around the country, like the one at Disney World, the one in Hawaii, and the big one in Chicago. Maybe I can find some highlights of those on youtube. But for now, it is Macy’s, leading off with Tom Turkey welcoming the day.
Football games, a traditional turkey dinner with sourdough bacon and mushroom dressing, cranberry sauce, and spending time with My Sweet Babboo completes the holiday. There will be some internet surfing for great bargains as you never know what you might find and need to grab before it is sold out. I got my fabulous turkey plates by ordering them on sale on Thanksgiving morning a few years ago, for use in years to come. They sold out mere hours later.
If you are in the mood to start some holiday shopping, here are the best deals this weekend for my affiliate vendors. I really appreciate it when you can use these links to begin your holiday shopping, as they help pay the costs of the blog, keeping obnoxious ads off my posts, and funding the costs of server space, domain, photo storage, shipping prizes, materials for new designs and giveaways. I try to only put these in a post when there is a sale or a deal that might interest you.
