"Map to Harbourfront Centre and PawsWay in Toronto" image by Mike DeHaan from Google Maps
I felt fortunate to find and share two free Toronto venues that are practically neighbours for the upcoming 2012 Canadian Thanksgiving weekend.

"2 Free Events for Thanksgiving 2012 on Queen's Quay in Toronto" highlights Harbourfront Centre's "Harbour Kids" for those under the age of 12; and PawsWay's "Woofjocks Canine Performance Team" dog show.

My article includes links to their official sites, as well as an older meditation I'd published at Suite 101 called "I Have Problems with Giving Thanks at Thanksgiving". Surely this seasonal holiday deserves some personal thought about its meaning, rather than simply racing to visit relatives and dine in celebration of the harvest.

Promoting Canadian Thanksgiving 2012 at Queen's Quay in Toronto

Naturally my Xanga blog ("Queen's Quay in Toronto for the 2012 Canadian Thanksgiving") also promotes my article.

A Thankful Writing Tip

Today's writing tip praises the ability to use coincidence in an article.

Specifically, I'd checked Harbourfront Centre's site to learn what they were doing for Canadian Thanksgiving 2012.

Then I researched what the City of Toronto offered for this same holiday weekend. To my delight, the PawsWay event was listed there, as well as several other festivities.

I knew that PawsWay is on Queen's Quay in downtown Toronto because it's on one of my favourite routes for my long training runs.

Rather than combine even more events into one messy stew of miscellany, I decided to present one article with a sharp focus. People can experience both free events in one trip downtown, or return again and again if they so choose.

I might yet write about another autumn Toronto event that celebrates Thanksgiving for this weekend, but today's single article makes a much tidier package.

It may be a coincidence that these events "coincide" in geography as well as in the calendar; but as a writer, it's a good thing to take advantage of this opportunity to write about two separate, free Canadian Thanksgiving events in Toronto that are good neighbours.

    Flexible Sidebar

    Weebly's "Blog Author" widget from the Blog Sidebar's Elements menu provides a lot of flexibility. You can change both the title and the text.

    It has all the capabilities for text editing that you find in most Weebly text widgets.

    At this point, I don't see a way to code any HTML in this widget.

    The "Picture" does what you expect: it displays an image of your choice. I just added my home-made picture of "Copyright DeHaan Services 2013" as the top element in this sidebar on Jan. 22, 2013.

    The "Search Box" is a "Pro" feature; if you're paying for Weebly hosting, it may be worthwhile.

    The other widgets are pre-programmed to do what they say.
