We wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving is a time of togetherness, love, sharing and giving thanks to your loved ones. A day for expressing thanks for all the wonderful things in our lives.
A bit of trivia…..The origin of Thanksgiving began in 1621 when American colonists in Plymouth, Massachusetts and the Wampanoag Indians shared the first Thanksgiving meal. Thanksgiving historians doubt that there was pumpkin pie (sugar and flour were not available) or mashed potatoes (the Europeans still considered the potato poisonous at this time). Original feast foods that might surprise you were fish, eel, berries, watercress, lobster, dried fruit, clams, venison, and plums.
There are so many great photo opportunities during the Thanksgiving holiday. Whether it’s your great Aunt Emily’s pumpkin pie. Your Mom’s beautiful Thanksgiving table. Your golden turkey cooked to perfection. Your little one with his great grandpa. Whatever it is we want to see it.
Now’s the time to show off your photographic talent. Thanksgiving is a time to spend with family and friends and just appreciate each other. We encourage you to capture those special memories on film.
