Thanksgiving is a holiday about gratitude, about family and about possibility. It brings people together to not only celebrate the end of the harvest, but to look one in another in the eye and share something magical.
The Thanksgiving Reader was created by Seth Godin, he has created The Thanksgiving Reader as a tool for all of us that will help us start a new holiday tradition. Here’s how it works…
First, download the free PDF file, print it out and become part of it. It’s free.
The idea is simple: At your Thanksgiving celebration (and yes, it’s okay to use it outside the US), consider going around the table and having each person read a section aloud.
The Thanksgiving Reader is designed to be read, out loud, together.
Some of the readings are for individuals, some are for pairs (responsive), some are for the entire group as one. You don’t have to hand out all of the readings, and he has included a range of topics.
Of course, if you have something you’d like to add, please do! Every family deserves its own tradition.
Before the meal starts, all you need to do is put one page on each person’s chair and follow the simple steps.
During the ten or fifteen minutes your family spends reading together, millions of people will all be reading the same words, thinking about the same issues, connecting with each other over the essence of what we celebrate.
After all the travel and the cooking and the hassle, for these few minutes, perhaps we can all breathe the same air and think hard about what we’re thankful for.
Thank you for being part of this, something bigger than each of us.
Transparency & Appreciation: I want all of my readers to know that I do provide links on this blog to other businesses that sell products that I use and love, I will never post a link to anything that is inconsistent with my ideology.
When you do click on a link to a business that I have referred you to and you make a purchase, I will earn a small commission – the price to you though is always their regular price, or in some instances a special offer price.
When you do make a purchase you are showing me that you support my efforts, time and expenses… I am very grateful to those who have both chosen to come by to read what I have written, and at times utilize my referral of a service or product that I completely believe in.
Thank you very much!
