If it wasn’t obvious with the cooler weather, the time change bringing an early loss of daylight should make it quite apparent that fall is fading fast and winter is right around the corner. If it’s still not obvious, perhaps a quick trip to most retail stores who are busy erecting their holiday displays (already looking forward to December) will remind you that Thanksgiving is quickly approaching. Either way, it’s time to start getting your head-right-with-Tofurky. Here’s a quick holiday guide for ways to get your Thanksgiving fix on November 25th without the fuss – happy dining!
