This month Prince William Living explores family holiday traditions. What does it take to put on a spectacular holiday meal? How does your family build memories? Our feature, “A Thanksgiving Production, Featuring Tips from Prince William Pros” by Marianne Weaver, shows how local families pull together multiple cultures to create signature family celebrations.

Another November tradition is the announcement of the Prince William Living Giving Back awards winner. This annual program invites the public to nominate and vote for outstanding nonprofits serving our area. See if your favorite community organization won the top spot or was a runner up, and find out more about organizations making a difference in Greater Prince William.

Of course you can create new traditions, especially with this months month’s Family Fun: “Baking Mason Jar Pies With Your Children,” by Amanda Causey Baity. Learn this easy way to introduce your children to baking, and satisfy your holiday sweet tooth at the same time!

We would love to see what our readers are thankful for this Thanksgiving. Post photos of your Thanksgiving events: family fun projects, children, pets or anything that brightens your day on Instagram and tag them with #pwlivingthankful. We’ll share our favorites on PWL social media pages and one lucky reader will win a $25 Visa gift card to jump start his or her holiday shopping.

Speaking of which, be sure to check out our new 2015 Holiday Gift guide. With dozens of items in a variety of prices, this interactive publication will help you to zip through your gift-giving list. Best of all, everything is available right here in Prince William! Visit to keep your holiday shopping local this year.
