Thanksgiving Paper Chain

Chain made of paper strips marked with things to be thankful for.

This Thanksgiving Paper Chain is a wonderful project the whole family can do together. Each link represents something you are thankful for. Continue to add links throughout the season as a reminder of your blessings, because every day is a day for giving thanks.


On October 6, 1941, the House passed a joint resolution declaring the last Thursday in November to be the legal Thanksgiving Day. The Senate, however, amended the resolution establishing the holiday as the fourth Thursday, which would take into account those years when November has five Thursdays.
