Happy Early Thanksgiving everyone!
While Thanksgiving is mostly considered a North American holiday, the idea of setting aside one day a year to give thanks can be seen all over the world. Most festivals are in some way connected to the United States of America, like Canada and Liberia, while others have no connection what so ever. China, Vietnam, and many African countries have a harvest festival sometime in August, and Jewish families celebrate Sukkoth to remember the 40 year journey of the Hebrew people to the Promised Land. Our neighbor to the north feasts on Mr. Gobble Gobble on the second Monday of October. Grenada and Japan adopted the customs after American occupation of their countries, while Liberians, mostly descendants of escaped slaves, simply took the traditions back to their homeland. All of these celebrations, while celebrated at different times of the year in many diverse walks of life, they all center around families and close friends gathering together to celebrate and give thanks for a bountiful harvest.
This makes Thanksgiving a great hosting holiday! Below are a few pictures of a few of our collections for table service. Our platters are great for turkey service, and, of course, don’t forget about our savory storage containers for all those leftovers!
Have a fabulous Gobble Gobble day!
