A Time to Give Thanks

October 25, 2013
by Roxanne Buchholz, Studio Creative Team Manager


Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada as a day of giving thanks for the blessings of the previous year. For many of us, Thanksgiving traditions include feasting, time off work, football games, holiday parades, family reunions and the beginning of our winter holiday celebrations.

We also look for extra ways to share our gratitude with the people who mean the most to us. When we take the time to express our appreciation, especially during the Thanksgiving season, we find that our celebrations are richer and more meaningful!

Heritage Makers would love to assist you in your Thanksgiving preparation! We have dozens of  projects available in our Template Gallery to help you say “thank you” to the people that bless your life and to document your family’s favorite holiday activities. Let’s take a look at some of the possibilities!
