Did You Know?
Did you know that Thanksgiving was once the third Thursday in November (today)? In 1939, President Franklin D. Roosevelt made Thanksgiving one week earlier to create more shopping days before Christmas and to give the economy a boost. In 1941, the president returned Thanksgiving to the fourth Thursday.

The Full Moon
Orchards have shared their treasures,
The fields, their yellow grain,
So open wide the doorway—
Thanksgiving comes again!
