Feeling festive? Start your holiday season with a sumptuous Thanksgiving feast! Fire up the oven for a delectable dish of time-tested classics or add some unexpected touches for a tasty twist on tradition. And if you’re tired of all that traditional turkey time, opt for outreach at your local food drive, and lend a hand to those less fortunate. Whether you’re with your loved ones, your friends or on vacation abroad, make your Turkey Day memorable. Angelinos can visit https://www.lafoodbank.org/volunteer.aspx for more information on giving back.
Tired of all that turkey talk? Burn some calories on the busiest shopping day of the year. Celebrate the season ahead by picking out the perfect gift for your family and friends. Be sure to get a head start on your holiday shopping during the long weekend.
Every November 11, we celebrate the men and women who have served in the United States military with ceremonies, parades and volunteer opportunities. Though the holiday was originally titled “Armistice Day” to exclusively honor WWI veterans, it has now become Veterans Day to honor all veterans. Put your long weekend to use by paying it forward and volunteering to help our Veterans.
VIVA DIA DE LOS MUERTOS
The party doesn’t stop with Halloween. Dia de los Muertos provides the perfect opportunity to repurpose your ghoulish garb for a wicked weekend. The three-day Mexican fiesta honors the deceased with sugar skulls, marigolds and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed. Join the fright night at Hollywood Forever for their 15th annual Dia de Los Muertos festival held on Saturday, November 1.
