Thanksgiving is so much more than a single day of feasting with family and friends. It’s a season to reflect and to be grateful. This month we honor veterans, caregivers, Native Americans and more. Then we finish with a couple of big holidays.
It’s time to flip the calendar page, check out November holidays and observances, and start thinking about who we’re connecting with this month. We’ve shared some ideas to help you celebrate.
