November is about one thing, and one thing only: Thanksgiving. Whether you celebrate with family across the country, throw a potluck with your friends, practice gratitude, or just want to make a silly paper turkey with construction paper, everyone loves Thanksgiving. I dare you to find one person who can’t find a little joy in a big plate of creamy mashed potatoes and turkey (or Tofurkey, for all our vegetarian and vegan readers).
There are so many tools out there that can help you plan your best Thanksgiving ever, especially your iPad! Welcome the holiday season with some of our favorite seasonal apps.
Sweet potatoes or yams? Canned cranberry sauce or homemade? Everyone does Thanksgiving differently and there’s never one sure way to do it.
