Daylight Savings and Thanksgiving at The Hartley in Washington, DC

Hey there, time travelers! On November 5, 2023, at 2:00 A.M., we’re gaining an extra hour of precious sleep as we bid adieu to Daylight Saving Time. The sun will set a bit earlier, around 5:30 every night, but that’s still plenty of time for fall fun like pumpkin patches and apple picking.

Turkey Day is a tapestry of history and heartfelt appreciation. As the holiday season approaches, let’s remember its authentic roots.

In 1620, when the Pilgrims landed in Massachusetts, they met the Wampanoag tribe, who generously shared farming and trade wisdom. This exchange underscored the reciprocal relationship with nature and the significance of gratitude.

Thanksgiving embodies unity and appreciation, a national holiday devoted to reflection and cherishing time with loved ones. At The Hartley in Washington, DC, join us for a Thanksgiving celebration that pays homage to history and creates cherished memories.

Expect Broadway acts, live music, marching bands, and more at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. It’s a visual spectacle of balloons, floats, and performances. Whether you watch on NBC or stake out a spot along the 2.5-mile route, you’re in for a treat.

Embrace the spirit of thanks and relish the boundless possibilities this season brings. Happy Thanksgiving!
