National Tie One On Day

"Women clad in aprons have traditionally prepared the Thanksgiving meal, and it is within our historical linkage to share our bounty.” ~EllynAnne Geisel

Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Maybe you are thankful for getting together with friends & family...maybe you are thankful that the food is finally cooked & you get a chance to sit down! Whatever you are thankful for, perhaps you would like to use this holiday to share your bounty with another less fortunate. Consider National Tie One On Day!

As it is explained on the Apron Memories site, "Put the give back into Thanksgiving. Participation is simple. On the day before Thanksgiving, November 24th this year, pause in the preparation of your own meal, wrap a loaf of bread or other baked good in an apron, tuck a prayer or note of encouragement in the pocket, and tie one on…an apron, of course! and deliver the wrapped bundle to someone without your bounty… a neighbor, friend or family member in need of physical or spiritual sustenance, a bit of recognition or just a kind word." Apron Memories also provides you with a printable National Tie One On Day notecard to go with your gift.
