“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.” — Marcus Tullius Cicero
Although it is often packed with gift shopping, holiday events, and social get-togethers, November is a month focused on expressing gratitude. As the year draws to a close, this season grants us the opportunity to slow down and consider all the things we are thankful for, both big and small.
And here in Northern Colorado, there is so much to be thankful for, from our stunning scenery (especially this time of year!) to our exceptional sense of community, and our thriving craft beer scene to our steady job market. Not to mention, having a place to call home is something we shouldn’t take for granted, as so many don’t have their basic needs met, like food on the table or a roof over their head.
Amidst all the hustle and bustle of this holiday season, don’t forget to pause and remember all there is to be grateful for. And read on to enhance the season with fun craft ideas, Thanksgiving takeout, holiday lighting events, winter sports, and so much more!
Delicious food, football on TV, and time with family — there's so much to love about Thanksgiving. But above all, this holiday is the culmination of our month of thankfulness — and the perfect opportunity to share the spirit of gratitude with our loved ones, including the littlest members of our family! Get crafty this year by creating one of these meaningful Thanksgiving crafts, all of which are focused on expressing gratitude in unique ways.
