Thanksgiving Traditions

We have annual Thanksgiving traditions in our family:

--drive to Michigan

--the guys have to play the family football game, whether it's snowing, or sunny, or whatever...

--the gals have to prepare the feast, complete with turkey, stuffing, rutabaga, pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, corn, peas (and other veggies), bread rolls, sweet potato casserole, the jello dessert, banana cream pie, probably apple pie, mashed potatoes...and whatever we can think of that we may have missed in all that!

--watch the Detroit Lions (usually they get beat, but we can always hope!)

--eat leftovers for supper

Thankfully, this year, we don't have to rush back home.

Tell me about your traditions!

We go the coast every year with my side of the family. This year we did it a week early as you know. So on thanksgiving day we will do the traditional dinner with MIl and daughter and family. Then play games.

We're actually starting a new tradition. We used to visit my family in Louisiana or my hubsy's folks in Florida, but that gets rather costly for a family of five. So now, we're having a full Thanksgiving dinner at home -- just us -- but we each have to name something we're thankful for at the dinner table. It's not unique, but it's a start.
