It’s November 1st and it’s confession time. I really don’t love Halloween. Don’t get me wrong, I love Fall. I live for the cozy sweater weather and the crisp crunchy leaves. I enjoy wandering through a corn maze, taking in a hayride, or picking pumpkins. I especially love hot chocolate and warm apple cider.
But Halloween? Meh. The creepy, the gore, and the begging strangers for treats. That- I could do without.
Which is why I always look forward to November. It is the calm before Christmas, and a great time to sit back and take inventory of all your blessings. In fact, I think taking the time to first acknowledge and recognize your many blessings makes the Christmas season even sweeter.
Which is why I’m so happy to share my latest printable, Gratitude Garland! This makes a great family night activity, or is an equally maningful task to do by yourself. Simply print and cut out the flags, then write what you’re grateful for on each flag. Add some string and display in your home for the Thanksgiving season.
