Take a Break for Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving 2017

On this special day of the year, Americans celebrate:

In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgivingcelebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.  from History.com

Here, at Bahoukas Antique Mall and Beer MuZeum, we want to first wish each and every one of you a heartfelt Happy Thanksgiving. We also want to remind you to take a moment to truly be thankful for all that you have… love, family, friends, food and shelter. At the same time, take a moment to reach out to another who may not be as fortunate.

Most of all, take time to breathe: breathe in the wonderful aromas of the season, breathe and smile for those you share it with, breathe and let go of all that feels like a burden, breathe… relax … give thanks.

Giving Thanks

At Bahoukas, giving thanks means YOU!

signage that says "THANKS" for each of you who visits Bahoukas!

Thanksgiving is a time to step back, take a deep breath, look around you, and express gratitude for all that is good. Times may be challenging, some may be feeling a sense of loss, others may feel left out. But take a moment to pause, to reflect on a moment in time that you thought was perfect, and say “Thank You.”

To that moment, here at Bahoukas we wish to say a very special THANK YOU to each and every person who has stopped by, emailed, commented on facebook, or purchased via eBay. Not only do we appreciate your patronage, but it’s wonderful to continue to make new friends. Thank You and Happy Thanksgiving!
