A Save Thanksgiving Pledge

What does it really mean to save Thanksgiving? In order to bring Thanksgiving into focus, a few things need to happen.  Below I have created my Save Thanksgiving pledge.  I humbly ask you to join me and join the movement. 

Until November 23 will refrain from
  • Christmas shopping
  • Christmas décor
  • Singing along to holiday music no matter how catchy Mariah Carrey may be
  • Drinking from Starbucks red cups (In the interest of full disclosure, I have already broken this, twice. In my defense, I was traveling and didn’t bring my reusable cup with me)
  • Reading Christmas themed publications or internet features (this includes the amazing looking Real Simple that was just delivered to my house)

Up until November 23 I will
  • Shout from the rooftops how awesome Thanksgiving is
  • Use my voice on social media to share stories and recipes related to Thanksgiving all tagged #SaveThanksgiving
  • Be grateful for the blessings in my life. And let the people in my life know that I am thankful for them.
  • Volunteer my time

Notable exceptions
  • With family all over the country, travel plans needs to be made well in advance. I’m personally going to start talking about this with my family really soon. You can #SaveThanksgiving and still book an airline ticket.
  • Concert tickets. Jingle Bell Bash, The Nutcracker, these need to be bought in advance.  You can #SaveThanksgiving and make plans before to attend these types of events (after Thanksgiving, of course).

  1. I hope that some exceptions can be granted for busy schedules, because if I don't do Christmas shopping incrementally on weekends where I can here and there, I will have 0 gifts for the fam...and I think that would lead to massive riots...

    Otherwise I am 100% on board, my Turkey loving friend!

  2. Because the brown monkey slippers for men are very common, so in our lives, we need to take some time to get the right to own. For the different uses of the slippers, you should select them based on material. Part of the cap decision quality slippers will only part. Let's talk about several types of only part of the slipper, which are made of different materials.
    A common sole portion is made of artificial leather. Slippers made from these materials are in good shape, durable and good friction resistance. The disadvantage of these womens slippers sale is that they are not flexible and not so anti-skidding.
