These fun Thanksgiving ideas come from our own Thanksgiving celebrations. For years Thanksgiving was celebrated at Grandma and Grandpa’s house, who of course, know how to host a Thanksgiving dinner. However, as the kids got older and the annual “Thanksgiving High School Football Game” hopped on our schedule, the tradition changed. Our house became the Thanksgiving gathering spot. The crew from DC would trek up to NJ and we would host the festivities. As you may have gathered from scanning this site, I am not a good cook, but I do know how to have fun! Our Thanksgiving celebrations have been re-directed from the nuances of complicated recipes to traditional fare and lots of fun and games.
|Every year we have Thanksgiving table favors, dinner entertainment and of course an after-dinner game. In the long run, that is what everyone loves best. Perhaps if I was a Rachel Ray or Martha Stewart, the food would be the memory, but alas, that is not the case. What we give thanks for here is that I don’t ruin the turkey and that we are together and having fun! So take a look here and see if these fun Thanksgiving ideas can help start your own Thanksgiving family traditions. You may be talented enough to combine great food and GREAT fun!!|
