Thanksgiving is a great holiday - it's all about food and sharing it with family and friends! Originally Thanksgiving was a harvest festival in which thanks was offered to God for the bountiful harvest that would provide food through the winter. In the United States it is also connected to the early Pilgrims who (so the story goes) shared their meal with the Native Americans who had taught them about native food sources and thus allowed the Pilgrims to survive. Wild turkeys were surely part of the native food supply, and so turkeys have an important role in contemporary Thanksgiving feasts!
For a holiday that centers on food, surely we need salt and pepper shakers that are not just functional but also decorative. Here is a collection of delightful shakers I found that I'd love to have on my table for Thanksgiving.
