A season of looking forward No matter how much I try to live in the moment, when the calendar flips to November, I can’t resist thinking ahead to the holidays. Perhaps that’s not a bad thing. In some measure, the joy of celebration lies in the anticipation: the menu planning and making ahead, the e-mail exchanges about ideas and possibilities, the looking forward to the moment when the family arrives.

For your Thanksgiving meal, we’ve created more than a dozen options for side dishes and desserts—familiar flavors, but with just enough twist to keep things interesting, page 112. For holiday entertaining, we’ve…

november moments to make and things to do

Holidays aplenty For the first time in more than a century, Hanukkah overlaps with Thanksgiving. Commemorate this once-in-a-lifetime coincidence by mashing up more than your butternut squash. Corral a collection of votives into a nontraditional centerpiece—and how about serving latkes along with the green bean casserole? Turn to page 152 for our classic potato pancake recipe. Listen up! Say sayonara to Black Friday shopping sprees and lend an ear for National Day of Listening instead. Record a loved one’s story using your phone (SoundCloud is free for iOS and Android), and upload it at StoryCorps’nationaldayoflistening.org.
