As we all know Thanksgiving is growing near. Is there any special traditions you follow? Is there a favorite part of the day for you?
For me the family usually comes to my house or we go over to my sisters. Normally it is my mom and stepdad, Brother, sister & brother in law, 2 nieces, nephew, Husband and myself. After a wonderful meal of several dishes we sit around and talk, laugh and while some of us watches tv the rest of us play a game of dominoes. We play a game called “Chicken Foot”. Have you ever heard of that game? It is really fun!! If you haven’t heard of it before here is a link I found that explains it better:
We actually use the colored dominoes when we play. And for fun on Thanksgiving I yell “gobble gobble gobble” Instead of chicken foot!
While I enjoy the food too much I think as I get older it is more the interaction with the family that I enjoy the most. It is a day set aside to just have a good time. To leave all differences behind us and to just enjoy each other. Yes it is a day to be Thankful, but honestly I am thankful all year long, even though I don’t always show it.
As Thanksgiving gets nearer I plan on posting some of my favorite recipes. Craft ideas. Etc. If you have a favorite recipe, tradition or anything dealing with Thanksgiving please let me know and I will share it here on my blog along with proper credit to you!
