I hope all who celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday had a wonderful time! As the internet makes the world a smaller place I think we chose new traditions to adopt. Here in the UK Halloween is much more of an event than it used to be and now we have Black Friday sales too! I do wish we could adopt Thanksgiving also. I suppose we have Harvest Festivals but I love seeing my American and Canadian friends making Thanksgiving such a special occasion :D Oh, one we do very well here in Scotland though is New Year or also known as Hogmanay. Unlike the rest of the UK, which gets only one days holiday on New Year, Scotland has two and the holiday is steeped in many traditions. First-footing is the calling to see neighbours on New Years day (the first foot through the door) and traditionally involved bringing a small gift or drink. One of my neighbours and good friends started dating when he first-footed her on New Year!
Anyway, I digress, back to those sales and here’s one not to miss! 15% off storewide from Simon Says Stamp using the code BLACKFRIDAYSALE! If you’ve not already indulged I’d highly recommend the new In Stitches release – I’ve just received mine and love the double stitched cutting edge design :D
Although we’ve not celebrated Thanksgiving, I am with family this weekend so I will get back to them. I hope you enjoy all the wonderful shopping offers today!
