Celebrating Thanksgiving

If you are looking for ideas for celebrating Thanksgiving this year, look no further! We’ve gathered dozens of great resources from around the web and added a few of our own on our Thanksgiving Holiday Helps page.

You may also enjoy our 7 Thanksgiving Stories {Free Downloads} that we have put together — stories to warm the heart by Louisa May Alcott, James Baldwin, Sarah Orne Jewett, O. Henry, and more!

We launched our Holiday Helps pages back in the mid-2000s as a way to pass along the resources we found helpful in making each holiday a special one. They have greatly expanded over the years.
