Picture"Image of Twin Tom Turkeys in Hawaii" by Alan L
Personally, I think of Canadian Thanksgiving as the start of the busiest season of writing that features holidays in a particular season of the year.

So, although my recent "2013 Thanksgiving Family Activities in Toronto" simply highlights frugal things to do in Toronto, like many previous articles, it does feel like the prelude to Hallowe'en and the winter holidays including Diwali, Christmas and Kwanzaa.

This current article puts the emphasis on free or frugal activities for the family. It even stretches beyond Toronto and the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) with one of the suggestions.

When is Thanksgiving in Canada? It comes in mid-October. Canadian turkeys are eaten a few weeks earli  rather than waiting for November in the USA.

One Well Seasoned Writing Tip

It's easy to find seasonal topics for your articles, when holidays and festivals come thick and fast.

Today's writing tip is to plan out your topics ahead of time. A couple paragraphs ago I added three seasonal holidays to whet your appetite. Simply check your calendar for the next few months. Your readers will be searching for information about those holidays.

With so many special days coming so quickly, it's important to schedule your writing. I've already seen Hallowe'en advertising as well as articles, so others might be ahead of you.

Once we get into early 2014, it may seem that the holidays are less frequent. My advice still holds: check your calendar, and plan to cover your niche. St. Valentine's Day is not the only February event for Americans. People travel for more than just spring break week. Children need activities, and cooks need recipes, for more than Easter Sunday.

With a bit of planning, your well seasoned writing can make good use of holidays all year.

    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.
