Even if you haven't had a great year, you can usually come up with something to be thankful for on this last Thursday of November every year in the U.S. Here are three extra things that Glenview and Wilmette residents may want to consider being thankful for this year:
1. Chances are good that there will not be an accumulation of snow. While the kids in your household may not consider this something to be thankful for, those who have to drive or shovel the fluffy white stuff know why this item tops the list of things to be thankful for in Northbrook in 2009.
2. Times they are a-changing and many restaurants are now open on Thanksgiving Day. While some people love all the work associated with preparing a big Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings, apparently not everyone is so inclined if restaurant openings are any indication. For those who would like to eat hearty on Thanksgiving Day without spending all day cooking and cleaning up, not to mention shopping beforehand, here's a list of 60 restaurants in the Chicago area that will be open on Thanksgiving Day. If 60 choices aren't enough, you'll find a link on the page to another 25 as well!
3..Christkindlmarket Chicago opens in Daley Plaza on Thanksgiving Day. The country's largest truly German market - Christkindlmarket Chicago - opens today for a sneak peak, beginning at 11 a.m. and running until 4 p.m. It will continue to be open every day until Christmas, it's last day being December 24th, Christmas Eve. Christkindlmarket features handcrafted, unique gift items such as handblown glass ornaments, cuckoo clocks, jewelry, and toys. Many of the artists even offer demonstrations of how their works are created. Food and drink is in abundance as well, so you could forego a sit-down Thanksgiving dinner altogether and eat at Christkindlmarket this holiday.
