Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend, and I’m incredibly thankful for more things than I can mention in one post. I’m not quite sure why or how, but I’m a lucky girl with a healthy family, loving husband, incredible friends, and a job I passionately love doing. I’m so grateful, and I love sharing with you what I can -sign language for Thanksgiving!

Here are the ASL signs of some words you might be talking about this weekend in Canada (and still to come in November for my American friends)!

THANK YOU – fingertips start near the mouth and then arc forwards towards the person you are thanking.

THANKSGIVING – your fist with index finger & thumb extended and pointing down taps on chin, then taps on chest

How to sign TURKEY in American Sign Language  www.growingsigns.com
TURKEY -your fist with index finger & thumb extended and pointed down is held under the chin, then waved sideways back and forth a few times (kind of like the wattle of a turkey).

A very Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to you, my friends!
