November Celebrations

Black Fridaya person with a shopping bag that says

If you enjoy shopping, you’re not going to want to miss out on Black Friday. Keep in mind that there will be a lot of people out and about looking to score some deals with Black Friday discounts, so be prepared to navigate through heavy crowds. We suggest planning a budget so you don’t overspend on items you don’t really need. So if you’re looking to burn off some of that Thanksgiving meal you just ate, get your shopping on!

Giving Tuesdaya coffee cup and a pen next to a napkin that says

Giving Tuesday started as an effort to help bring the focus of the holidays back on what they are really about — giving. This initiative is worldwide and seeks to reinstate the habit of giving in a world that has become so focused on receiving and being concerned only about oneself. Giving to others can not only bring joy to others, but to you as well.

Upcoming Holidays

Short Story Recommendations

Bert’s Thanksgiving

This is a story about an old man and a young boy who run into each other on Thanksgiving. The story teaches (among other things) that money is not the source of true riches. What do you treasure most of all?

Mr. Pancake Turkey

Mr. Pancake Turkey is a fun story about Farmer Francis. As he goes to feed his turkeys, he notices that one is as flat as a pancake. The next day, he finds that the same turkey is even flatter. What follows is a tale of money and greed as a result of the flat turkey and an important lesson for more than just Farmer Francis.
