Welcome to the online home of Connecticut Parent
Magazine, the State’s Leading Publication for FamiliesTM
We have a lot to be thankful for in November. Summer temps have been hanging on, we’ve had a beautiful fall, AND …. we escaped hurricane season! Veteran’s Day is the 11th; we are grateful for veterans and those currently serve in the military — thank you for your service. This is also a good time to appreciate family and friends — they are what make everything worthwhile! Something else we are fortunate to have, filled with gratitude for all things great and small, is the November issue of our magazines.
Holiday time has officially begun! There is a cornucopia of happenings going on throughout Connecticut all season long. Whether you’re looking for a production of The Nutcracker, a good laugh from a favorite show, a trip on a trolley to visit Santa or any number of other wonderful events, as you’ll see when you read the Holiday Happenings content. There is something to keep you busy almost every day for the rest of the year!
With the holidays on your mind, it’s natural to think of fun and parties! If you’re preparing for a birthday bash, or organizing a holiday shindig, don’t miss the semi-annual Party Spectacular. It’s filled with wonderful party ideas — from magicians, bouncing houses and exotic animals to characters and cookies to make your gathering memorable. The content links to web pages where you can find out more information and book your event.
Getting towards the end of the year, it’ll soon be time for those New Year’s resolutions. Along with the resolutions where you promise yourself you are going to eat better and exercise, it could be a good time to re-evaluate your career. Several local universities offer a variety of graduate and undergraduate degree programs to get you on the right career path. This month we share opportunities in the ever-changing health care industry.
With daylight decreasing, it’s a good time to cuddle together with your family and read some good books. The Hamden Public Library is sharing some timely reads focusing on gratitude. This will spark great discussions about ways everyone can be thankful. And On That Note, one parent discovers the best gift of all is six little words.
If you’re still looking for more activities to experience this month, look no further than the Family Fun Calendar. There’s 30 days of fun — something for everyone.
We areextremely grateful for all of our readers, print and digital! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, and go ahead — indulge in that second piece of pie!
