It is less than one week until readers in the U.S. celebrate Thanksgiving, so your weekend reading links will reflect this theme.

I know many of you are creating all kinds of wonderful holiday crafts, recipes, and traditions at this time of the year.  If you have a spare minute, won’t you send me a note about what your family is up to this holiday season?  I would love to feature your ideas in our weekly Showcase!
