Thanks Giving

Yesterday Canada celebrated their Thanks Giving. A little earlier than the USA who celebrate theirs in November.

Thanks Giving is a day where families gather to give thanks for the good fortune that they have had that year. Traditionally people serve up a Turkey dinner, with lashings of vegetables.

It's a happy family celebration that usually marks the start of the earnest Christmas shopping. In the USA, the Friday following a Thanks Giving is called 'black Friday' as people panic shop with the looming date of Christmas in their mind! Don't panic shop, we have plenty of lovely gifts available and we gift wrap for free. If you're stuck, send us a note and we'll see if we can help.

We have a little Thanks Giving treat of our own... our Festive Friends include some very Thanks Giving fellows:

I love the surprised look on the Turkey's face... it's as if someone just told him about stuffing!
