How to Plan a Thanksgiving Gathering

Thanksgiving guests are the reason to pressure wash before the holidays

Photo by cottonbro

Are you hosting a Thanksgiving gathering at your home in 2020? If so, please remember to be safe as it relates to spreading germs. Second, put a solid plan, with a to-do list, together so you can have fewer worries and enjoy the holiday. This article offers a cheat sheet for your Thanksgiving gathering. It covers everything from guests with dietary restrictions to selecting a turkey to serving dessert.

We hope your meal tastes great, your football team wins and you make timeless memories.

The History of Thanksgiving in America

The first Thanksgiving between the Pilgrims and Wampanoag Indians happened in the fall of 1621, about 10 months after the Mayflower landed in Plymouth, MA. Only 44 of the 102 original voyagers were alive due to hardships of the first year. The celebration was for the great harvest, which happened because the Native-American Indians taught them about growing local crops. The Pilgrims were appreciated, because they had helped the Wampanoags fight back a rival tribe that attacked earlier in the year.

Thank You to Our Veterans on Veterans Day

Thank You to Our Veterans on Veterans Day

We say “Thank you” to all of the military veterans for your service to our country.

Did You Know: Originally, Veterans Day was called “Armistice Day.” The holiday was created to commemorate the signing of the armistice with Germany that ended the first World War. The focus of Armistice Day was on the veterans of that war, though it was always meant to honor all veterans of foreign wars. It was to honor those who risked their lives on the battlefield to secure the freedoms of all Americans.  

During the holiday’s inception, Congress also made November 11th a day of prayer and thanksgiving. The legislators also expressed a desire that the U.S. flag be on display during this day and that special ceremonies be held. Finally, in 1938, Armistice Day became a permanent, official public holiday. Over time, with the passing away of the World War I generation, the focus on the 1918 Armistice was lost and the name of the holiday was changed. Today, Veterans Day is generally regarded as honoring all those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, rather than only those who actually fought.

“The willingness of America’s veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude.”     — Jeff Miller

If the answer is yes to either question, know that these dark areas can be more than the difference between a beautiful home and an unsightly house. And while these stains are detracting from your home’s beauty, the real problem will come is a few short years. Those stains can cause expensive damage and cause health concerns, because they are caused by harmful elements. Those elements cause rot and may even be a health hazard.
