I’m going to be honest.
I’ve tried a lot of craft activities in the past few years.
I love all of them.
But the one that sticks with me the most is the Thanksgiving craft.
Thanksgiving craft, it’s like Christmas in a bottle.
You’re making a feast, you’re putting something together and you’re all together.
But for me, it was the Christmas part.
When I was young, we had a little cottage in our backyard that we shared.
We used to put the Christmas tree up in the back yard and decorate it with our little turkey, ham, and cranberries.
But I remember the first time I saw it, I was so excited.
The turkey was in its tree and all the cranberries were in their baskets.
The whole house smelled like Christmas, I thought.
So, the first Thanksgiving I saw that, “Oh, this is a Christmas miracle.”
So, I started putting together a Thanksgiving party that was Christmas-themed.
My mom was in the kitchen, so I was doing the cooking and she was cooking.
And I was cooking it for her.
So we were doing all the Thanksgiving-related stuff.
And then I had a big party at home.
It was a Christmas-filled party, and we had an amazing turkey.
And it was a really, really good turkey.
I got to make a whole bunch of Thanksgiving-themed gifts.
And Thanksgiving is just my favorite holiday.
The Christmas part of the year was just really, so much fun.
It really brings me back to being a kid.
You know, it is such a wonderful time.
And, yeah, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.
So for the holidays, I have a lot.
And there are so many.
But Thanksgiving, I’m a huge fan.
It’s a special time.
I really, I really like making Thanksgiving crafts.
So I’ll be honest, I’ve been making a lot this year.
And Christmas, it seems like Christmas is my favorite.
So when I get to make some Thanksgiving crafts, it makes me feel like I’m part of this family.
But it’s always fun.
I don’t think I’m doing this for the right reasons.
But Christmas, Christmas is a really special time, and I love doing it.
And a lot has changed in my life over the past five years.
But we’re doing Thanksgiving now, and the holiday is still going strong.
