Tantalizing Clipart to Make Happy Thanksgiving Projects

The kaleidoscopic canopy of foliage that autumn has created is beginning its slow fall, covering the ground with colour and crunch. The days are short, the air is crisp and in this corner of the world we are anticipating snow's first appearance. Hoping of course that the visit is sweet, but short.

When we think of celebrations at this time of year, Halloween is top of the list at the moment. Just days away, it's the front-and-centre theme in store windows and on homey porches. Since October arrived you'd probably have been able to ask any youngster about their costume for the big night and they'd have the answer ready.

However, in just a few short weeks, American citizens will be taking time from their regular workday routines for a far more significant holiday. On Nov. 24 they will gather with friends and family to give thanks for their many blessings. And to watch football.

Thanksgiving in the United States is held in recognition of the feast that followed the Pilgrims first harvest in the New World in 1621. Attendee Edward Winslow recorded that in addition to the 53 settlers, it was also attended by 90 Native Americans.  The day became a federal holiday in 1863 when President Lincoln called for a national day of thanksgiving and praise.

While the holiday was founded as a religious observance events today aren't restricted to the spiritual. New York City hosts an annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade for example.  And while families gather to enjoy a feast of roast turkey and all the trimmings, pulling them away from the weekend's NFL games to partake of that meal can be challenging. American football is as much a part of the holiday as pumpkin pie.  Besides the aforementioned there's typically college football to follow too.

Since the American Thanksgiving is always held on the fourth Thursday of November, citizens have taken advantage of an opportunity for an extra long holiday weekend with Black Friday. An unofficial kickoff to the Christmas shopping season, the day is full of bargains and discounts that entice massive hordes to  retail outlets to help them stretch that holiday gift-buying budget.

So, as we look past Halloween, as we push Nov. 8's  presidential election from our thoughts,  it will be time to have those Thanksgiving promotions and advertisements ready to go. Whether it's a church flyer for special events or services, a poster celebration of America's 'other' game,  ads for food and drink or promos for sales, nothing can be completed without quality illustrations.

Online subscription resources for clipart are the safe way to get the job done.  For example, by signing up with a site such as you are able to download images for use in projects that fall under their terms of use without concern of copyright infringement.

And if there's any question of whether or not you'd be able to find what you need, here are some terrific collections to prove the diversity of the wonderful content that would be available to you:'s Thanksgiving Illustrations
