Thanksgiving in Appalachia

As I think of things I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving Day-seems I keep coming up with Fs:

  • faith
  • family
  • freedom
  • friends

Although, there is one other thing that comes to mind… YOU. I’m thankful for you who read the Blind Pig-you who encourage me to continue in my endeavor to preserve and celebrate the rich Appalachian Culture and Heritage which I am blessed to be part of.

Happy Thanksgiving to you-from the whole Blind Pig Family.

    Reading your blog is like a trip home. I grew up in Lenoir.My Dads family was from Waynesville. I spent a lot of my childhood in Cherokee, Maggie Valley. Have lived away for 40 years but still miss it.
