Thanksgiving 2013 brings a unique merge of holidays and traditions. The first day of Hanukkah falls on Thanksgiving Day, each bringing their own blend of traditions and foods. This brings up the question of what is YOUR holiday tradition(s)? Are they ones that were carried on generation after generation or new ones created by you?
Our Thanksgiving is a blend of both the old and the new. We still have a house full of family for a big dinner of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, and, of course, pumpkin pie. Family will be arriving from near and far and after dinner will be watching football, naps, walks, and going through the “Black Friday”/”Gray Thursday” ads to plan our strategy. We used to settle in front of the TV to watch Macy’s Thanksgiving parade, but that is one tradition that has fallen by the wayside.
