Ah, my first Thanksgiving as a blogger! It's Thanksgiving time here in the U.S. The first Thanksgiving celebrated a big harvest, but now it's more of a time to reflect on what we're thankful for. Through art blogging, I've made some new friends in other countries who I know will relate to this holiday for giving thanks. Of course, it's also a time for families to get together for a special meal, traditionally turkey.
With my background in greeting card illustration, over the years I've collected some vintage cards which have neat images. I just ran across this 1956 calendar page by Norcross (an old greeting card company) which shows Thanksgiving falling on November 22, just as it does this year. I have to share it and wish you all Happy Thanksgiving.
