There are a lot of things in my town to be thankful for. For me, I think it is a combination of a lot of different things for which I am most thankful. So for this post, I made some collages. (For the location of the town, see map at the bottom of the post.)

We’re thankful for the textile/fashion industry heritage, and the textile museum.
We’re thankful for the art museum, the theatre and the library.
We’re thankful for the open air museum, and other buildings with interesting architecture.

When we’re not busy complaining about them, we’re thankful we have a hospital
(also including a hospital museum, and quite a few pieces of contemporary art);
and a choice of means of public transport: railway and busses and roads.
We’re also only about an hour away from an airport, and the coast,
and the second largest city in the country (Gothenburg).
We’re thankful that the town is surrounded by beautiful nature and places of historical interest.
