Thanks & Gratitude

November 19, 2013

Hi everyone! My name is Maria. Recently, I joined the marketing team at Cheryl’s and Co to help out for the busy Holiday season and am very excited! I will be a guest blogger throughout the Holiday season.

Thanksgiving 

It is mid-November what do you hear: the ringing of sleigh bells or the gobbling of a turkey? Many would say the ringing of sleigh bells as the Holiday season is top of mind for a lot of people. While the Holiday season is almost near, Thanksgiving is even closer with about one week left!

Over the past several years, I have noticed Thanksgiving Day seems to have become the prep day for the hustle and bustle of the Holiday season and is often overlooked. On this day people strategically plan their Black Friday shopping by browsing the ads, creating shopping lists, and napping for energy to combat the long lines and enormous crowds. Sadly, the real meaning of Thanksgiving is overlooked with the preoccupation of shopping and getting the “best” deal.

I love Thanksgiving as it is one of my favorite holidays of the year! It is spent watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade with all the floats, marching bands, and big finale with Santa’s arrival. Football games play on the T.V. all day until 4 PM when everyone gathers together around the table not only to eat an abundance of hearty food but also to give thanks and gratitude. While eating, naps, and football watching all make for a relaxing day, the best part is being able to share what I am thankful for and spend time with family.

This Thanksgiving Day think about what you are thankful for and express your gratitude. Take a step back from the hustle and bustle of the encroaching Holiday season and enjoy a day complete with delicious hearty food, long naps, laughter, love, football, and relaxation. Put down those newspaper ads, turn off the computers, and stop planning ahead. Live in the moment and listen closely and maybe you will hear the Turkey gobbling away…

What are you thankful for? Share your thoughts!

Thankful Thursday Thanksgiving Thanksgiveaway

November 10, 2011

Welcome back Cheryl’s fans!

November is the time for crisp air, golden leaves, warm nights inside, and Thanksgiving! It’s the holiday that’s sandwiched in between Halloween and Christmas and usually gets forgotten about, though I can’t imagine why. Sure, you don’t get to dress up in costume and get free candy for a day, no one really writes songs about it, and you don’t get presents, but there is a lot more to Thanksgiving than we give it credit for.

Thanksgiving is the time to spend with family and friends and give thanks for all the wonderful things in your life and theirs. It’s an excuse to get everyone together over a good meal and catch up on what’s going on. Thanksgiving allows you to celebrate all that you have, without getting stuck on presents or what you did and didn’t receive this year. We should all appreciate Thanksgiving a bit more and treat the holiday as it should be treated, without letting it get lost between old pumpkins and giant display ornaments!

Personally, I love Thanksgiving. I love everything about Thanksgiving right down to the wishbone! I have such a large family with my parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, second cousins, friends of family, all of their kids…you get the picture. We try to get together as much as we can so that we don’t lose touch, but holidays like Thanksgiving guarantee that we can all spend at least one day together, and impress each other with a chosen dish we’ve decided to make and bring to Thanksgiving dinner. One of my uncles and my grandma will usually take turns making the turkey, one of my aunts has the best mashed potatoes and potato salad I’ve ever tasted, and my mom is usually trying out new recipes and dishes each year so I’ll just have to wait and see what it is. This year, I’m sure I’ll get some praise when I bring over some Cheryl’s Thanksgiving cookies for my whole family to try…

All of this is why we’re happy to be doing our Thanksgiveaway Thanksgiving Sweepstakes for all of our fans! We just want to say thanks for sticking with us as fans, customers, and friends. We know that none of what we do would matter without all of your support. So join in the fun and let us show you how thankful we are that you are our fans! Our Thanksgiving Thanksgiveaway Sweepstakes will go on each Thankful Thursday leading up to Thanksgiving, where you could win our new Thanksgiving turkey cookie greeting.

Good friends, good fans, and good cookies: that’s a lot to be thankful for!
