Thanksgiving will be here before you know it. Don't worry though: we’re here to help you every step of the way. In the first installment of four Facebook Live segments dedicated to helping you prepare for Thanksgiving, Bridget Lancaster and Julia Collin Davison shared our Thanksgiving Countdown Calendar, which breaks down when you should start prepping each step of your holiday meal.

We created the calendar below to help you plan ahead so you can enjoy Thanksgiving Day with family and friends.
