Let's all have a real old time Georgia Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving in Georgia is a celebration of giving thanks to our Lord and to each other for the bountiful blessings given during the past year. Past times and traditions from Georgia's early settlers can still be witnessed in the modern kitchens of today's homes. Possum invites you to explore these traditions from Georgia and others across our great Nation as we celebrate our common heritage, blessings and hope for the future.
