Thanksgiving Day Hot Coffee for Early Birds

Thanksgiving Day Coffee for Early Birds A good Thanksgiving Day begins with Planning. A great Thanksgiving morning begins with Coffee.

Thanksgiving morning begins early for some; those who wake to prepare the meal for the day. For such early risers it seems only appropriate to me that the day should start out with a freshly brewed strong pot of coffee. There are simple pleasures in life and a strong coffee start to the day is merely one of them. Once the eyelids are lifted it is time to remember the day is for giving thanks, so have some fun with your morning coffee and celebrate the day.
