Thanksgiving is a national holiday celebrated on various dates in the United States, Canada, Brazil, Grenada, Saint Lucia, and Liberia, and the sub-national entities Leiden, Norfolk Island, and Puerto Rico. It began as a day of giving thanks and sacrifice for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year.
This year I will not gather with a large group for my Thanksgiving celebration. Instead a simple meal for two will be shared at my table. My inspiration for my small Thanksgiving table is the thrift store angel I got last year. The ceramic angel holds a pumpkin and the words “Give Thanks” adorn her skirt. Perfect for my Thanksgiving lunch.
