November wouldn’t be complete at Hawks Landing Farm without our Thanksgiving Jar. The concept is really simple. At the beginning of November we put a quart canning jar on the kitchen table along with a pen and strips of autumn colored paper. Whenever someone thinks of something they are thankful for they write it down and stick it in the jar. As we eat Thanksgiving Dinner we take turns pulling the slips out and reading them. Aaron and David have never known a Thanksgiving with the Thanking Jar. Friends and neighbors even get in on the act adding a message whenever they happen to be in the house. There’s still a few weeks until Thanksgiving, get a jar, or a mug, or whatever container you like, and start a new tradition at your home.
What are you thankful for?
