Ah, Thanksgiving! It’s one of the most anticipated holidays of the year and marks the start of the holiday season that involves eating lots of turkey for dinner. Now, we might talk about the deeper meaning of Thanksgiving, but let’s face it, most of us are after one thing and one thing only: stuffing our beautiful faces with delicious home-cooked meals!
Crispy oven-baked bird meat, roasted golden potato-thingies, steaming stuffing, bucketloads of gravy, delicious cranberry sauce, and grandma’s Thanksgiving pie. Mmm-mmmmm! It can’t get better than this.

You can wear a knee-length coat if you are traveling officially. Wear it with a collared shirt; gingham prints will rock the look or simply a plain high-neck sweater underneath. Since you want to keep it sort of formal, go for cotton slacks and moccasins to compliment this type of couture.

A smiling postman in Chicago poses with a load of Christmas parcels in 1929
Christmas time in the city is one of the greatest times of the year. People are smiling, the snow is falling, and presents are being opened by boys and girls alike. You’ve heard that the United States Post Office delivers whether there’s rain sleet or snow, and in that case that claim goes double because this happy go lucky postman is working on Christmas Day. In the 1920s the postal service didn’t have nearly as many people working for them as they do now, and they definitely have the shipping technology to get packages across the country in an expedient way. The packages may not have arrived as quickly as they could, but it fee...
