November 23: Eat a Cranberry Day

cranberriesNovember 23 is Eat a Cranberry Day! Ever since I saw this, I’ve been racking my brain to remember if I’ve ever eaten a fresh cranberry, and I don’t think I have. It’s rather ridiculous, because I really enjoy a little cup of cranberry juice (especially if it’s cranberry grape), and I’m super excited for the cranberry sauce and cranberry jello that I know is coming next week. 🙂 I even like snacking on “Craisins” (Technically, I suppose they are dried cranberries, but I’ve always thought of them as craisins.) Maybe it’s time for me to try out some fresh cranberries.

If straight cranberries aren’t your cup of tea, check out this page for some fun looking recipes, all featuring the cranberry.

“In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world—just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace.”

Colossians 1:6b

I know it's still November (and I really do love Thanksgiving!), but I can't wait for Christmas!

November 22: Go For A Ride Day

Go For a Ride?Winter’s coming, folks. Well, to be honest, it’s just about here. I’m watching  a little snow flurry outside my window right now. However, the roads are still good, which makes this the perfect time to celebrate Go For a Ride Day.

The goal of today’s holiday is simple: go for a ride. Mode of transportation is your choice – car, bus, motorcycle, bicycle . . . if you’re really lucky, you could take a horse ride. If you have to have a destination, that’s fine, but I’m pretty sure you get bonus points if you just go exploring.

“Praise be to his glorious name forever;
may the whole earth be filled with his glory.
Amen and Amen.”

Psalm 72:19
