Counting Your Blessings On Thanksgiving!

Posted by

Happy Thanksgiving from Our Family to Yours!

Turkey. Mashed potatoes. Dinner rolls. Pumpkin pie. Food galore! As we gather around the Thanksgiving table, let us remember that this holiday is about more than just enjoying a gloriously huge feast--it’s about family, spending time with those we love and counting our blessings. Here are some of the best ways to focus on the most important aspects of this holiday.

Get the Family Involved 

Allow everyone to participate in cooking (and cleaning up) the Thanksgiving meal. Rabbit Creek offers a number of no-bake cheesecakes, dips and cheese balls that do not require sharp utensils and are easy for children to follow. Allowing all members of the family to contribute helps everyone feel a bit more grateful for the delicious meal prepared.

Count Your Blessings

One of our favorite traditions while sitting at the Thanksgiving table is having each person state one thing (or two) for which he or she is thankful. It can be big or small, but every one of us have something to be thankful for whether it be a job, daily transportation, good health or simply the time spent together as a family. If you would rather keep your thoughts private, keep a daily journal entry outlining everything for which you’re grateful. Giving thanks shouldn’t just take place during the holiday season!

Enjoy Thanksgiving Day...All Of It

Say “NO” to shopping on Thanksgiving Day this year. Each year, Black Friday starts earlier and earlier, cutting into family time for both store employees and shoppers. Instead of rushing out the door for a good deal, spark up a interesting conversations with those you don’t have the opportunity to see every day. Take the time to learn how your cousin is doing, or ask your grandparents about their favorite part of the holiday. For a list of retailers closing their doors all day on November 26, click here. Thanksgiving Day should be spent enjoying time with our loved ones, not rushing to snatch up the newest gadget at the lowest price.

What are you most thankful for this Thanksgiving? We are especially blessed with an incredible staff and wonderful customers. From all of us at Rabbit Creek Gourmet Products, thank you for all that you do!
