Less than a week to Thanksgiving and deciding how to roast that turkey! In our everyday demanding routines we forget to appreciate the little things in life that make life beautiful. Small things like having food on the table every day, or having a family and friends to share meals with. Even something that we take for granted, like having a job! (That pays for everything we do, want to do, or dream of doing)


Some argue that everyday should be thanksgiving, and that we should not have one day to celebrate it. I have nothing against Thanksgiving, but there is something special about keeping a whole day dedicated to saying thanks and being generous. Life truly has become hectic hence, this one day, where we stop and smells the flowers, is a blessing. Let it not go to waste.

Get into holiday mode now, shop for yourself and get gifts for others, organize grand dinners and getaways with friends and family, become infectious and contaminate everyone with your holiday spirit! ;)

Many must have shopped ahead, and are now thinking ofwrapping gifts over the weekend,getting nostalgic about their mom’s best gravy recipes.(For more, simply look at some of the best thanks giving recipes and enjoy in your own style.) Others must be thinking of finding things in the house that they could pass off as gifts. We thought of bringing Thanksgiving meal to you and online gifting opportunities as well. After all it is better to give gifts late than not at all. Now it is your duty to organize a group of friends and go celebrate the holiday cheer!

Let’s have a look at some of the most delicious dinners in and around town and then celebrate thanksgiving the way you want.
