Happy Thanksgiving!

“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”- F. Scott Fitzgerald

It’s officially fall! Well, actually, we’re already into October – how crazy is that?

This all means that we here at Green & Green are gearing up for the busy holiday season, which starts next Monday, October 14th with Thanksgiving. Traditionally, Thanksgiving is a time when families gather to celebrate the harvest and a prosperous year – and feast!

This can be hard when you can’t be with family, so why not send them your own cornucopia? Our harvest-themed baskets are a wonderful complement to any Thanksgiving dinner, and will give you a presence at your loved ones’ table even if you can’t be there in person.

With family or not, take the time to appreciate the beauty of autumn. Look hard enough and you will always find something to be thankful for. Take a walk in your local park to soak in the rich colours of the leaves. Stroll through a Farmer’s Market and get excited about root vegetables and fresh apples! Bake a pumpkin pie and top it with extra whip cream – it’ll help keep you warm for the chilly nights, we promise.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Green & Green!
