The historic intent behind the occasion is, of course that of gratitude for the bounty of good things in one's life. What comes to mind first are always images of family and food. Extended relatives gather together to enjoy a feast usually comprised of turkey with all the fixings, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie.
While the day is an opportunity to reflect on the bounty of riches that have come one's way, it is also the time when Americans indulge one of their most favourite pastimes — football. While waiting for, or recovering from that bountiful feast, families will fill living rooms and dens to enjoy the Thanksgiving Classic, an annual treat since the inception of the NFL in 1920. The event is a series of football games played during the holiday.
What better kind of celebration, the intent of which is primarily to turn one's mind to all that is good in life, than one replete with family, food, fun and games.
So to my neighbours to the south I send my wishes for a very Happy Thanksgiving. And hope that if you are looking for illustrations for those special projects — whether it's to promote an event, to decorate your holiday emails or to use in a scrapbook of memories, to name just a few possibilities — you will enjoy these wonderful clipart collections:
