Get your favorite apron ready. Tomorrow, November 23, is National Tie One On Day.
National Tie One On Day was started by “apron lady” EllynAnne Geisel to help us put the giving back in Thanksgiving.
Her idea is that each of us should use the Wednesday before Thanksgiving as a time of sharing instead of stressing. It’s time to stop worrying about preparing a large holiday meal and focus on others.
It’s easy to get started. Just take a moment out of your day, wrap a loaf of bread or other baked goodie in an apron or a towel and deliver it to someone who could use a kind gesture. (And these days, who wouldn’t benefit from a random act of kindness?)
As we all know, these last few years have been especially difficult for so many of our friends, neighbors, and family members. I can’t imagine anyone who wouldn’t appreciate a thoughtful gesture like this.
It doesn’t matter if you bake a loaf of bread from scratch or buy a box of cookies at the store. Just tie on an apron and get started.
