  2. 2. This exhibit spans a little less than an one hundred year period. It contains a holiday article about being thankful for the family home to articles about Christmas memories from childhood. There is poetry from contributors and recipes for Thanksgiving and Christmas meals. All the publications had either Ads for holiday gifts or do- it-yourself holiday crafts and gift ideas. These publications can be found in ACDC’s Volume One Number One collection.
  3. 3. THANKSGIVING MEAL “Have you ever heard of cooking your turkey in a dishwasher? Maybe someone told you to tum the oven off halfway through recommended cooking time and allow the trapped heat to finish the job. Perhaps you've been tempted to roast poultry in a brown paper bag instead of an oven cooking bag. Don't give in to the temptation to try these risky shortcuts, says Dr. Sue Snider, University of Delaware Cooperative Extension food and nutrition specialist. Thawing and cooking a large turkey takes more time than the average cook is used to, but that's no excuse for taking chances with food safety.” – Outreach November 1992. p. 4. Thanksgiving Dessert from New Jersey Farm and Garden November 1956. p. 70.

  7. 7. HOLIDAY CRAFTS “Let as much of your own self as possible go with your gift. Little pieces of birch bark, collected while you were away during the summer, make real pretty covers for needlebooks and penwipers, or even pretty picture frames into which you might place one of those remarkable penny copies of masterpieces of art. How much such a gift would brighten a sick room. Your elderly friend would think the needlebook very nice. Mother would like some useful thing made at your sewing class, girls, even though the workmanship was not perfect.” – American Agriculturist December 1902. p. 650.
