Vintage Eat Less and Be Thankful poster, image courtesy of US National Archives
This Thanksgiving weekend, I thought I'd post this one.  It's one of my favorites out of all the ones that I've run across in my continuing online search for vintage poster images.

This one was obviously a Thanksgiving poster, circa WWI that urged people to "Eat less and be thankful that we have enough to share with those who fight for freedom".  Pretty nice words, then and today, as we all spend this weekend with our loved ones, eating and being thankful. 

Hope you are having a nice holiday weekend, or if you aren't in a place that celebrates the holiday, I hope you are having a great weekend doing whatever makes you happy!  After all, that's what life is all about.
