Let’s be honest, half the fun of a holiday is the days leading up to it when you get to daydream about all of its glories, for example the food, gifts, family, friends, and vacation from school or work. Why not make the most of holiday cheer? One day is simply too short of a time to be excited about an event. So, here are five ways to get into the Thanksgiving spirit early!
1. Drink a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks
They say smell is the strongest form of memory we have. Maybe it’s just me, but for some reason, as soon as I put this drink to my mouth, its scent enters my nose and immediately brings me to my Thanksgiving table. Not only that, but it tastes amazing too.
2. Paint your nails with Essie’s ‘Wicked’
In my mind, part of Thanksgiving’s appeal is the fact that it takes place during Autumn. The leaves have mostly fallen, and they appear on the ground in a beautiful collage of reds and oranges. To mimic this beauty, I like to paint my nails with Wicked; it’s burgundy tone is perfect for the fall.
3. Look at pictures of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
Nothing says Thanksgiving more than the Thanksgiving Day Parade. Here, you can browse through pictures of last year’s parade. It’s a perfect way to procrastinate and get pumped at the same time.
4. Dress a pumpkin in lace
Although people often associate pumpkins with Halloween, they do tend to stick around through Thanksgiving. Where would we be without pumpkin pie? Anyways, this DIY Lace Pumpkins is a fun and productive way to get excited about Thanksgiving! Plus, you can use the results to decorate your Thanksgiving table!
We must not forget, Thanksgiving is ultimately about being thankful. There’s no better way of showing thanks than volunteering. Head to your local soup kitchen and offer to lend a hand so others can enjoy Thanksgiving as much as you do, or even organize your own simple food drive. Help like this never goes unnoticed.
