Third Thursday Thoughts: Thanksgiving Traditions

Welcome to another edition of Third Thursday Thoughts, brought to you by the wonderful people at Hearts at Home! Every third Thursday of the month, we share our thoughts on the topic of the month. This month’s topic: Let’s talk about why Thanksgiving is important to you and your family!

Our family is spread out across the country, from Florida to Michigan, Oregon and Alaska, so we don’t usually have a big gathering for Thanksgiving. My parents and my immediate family live in Florida, so we get together either at our house ~ where my husband does the cooking ~ or at my parents’ house ~ where my dad does the cooking! Yes, the men in our family definitely enjoy cooking more than the women! And I’m happy to let them do it… But we definitely help out with the side dishes. My mom makes a great apple pie, and it’s my job to make the raspberry Jell-O. (It’s made with applesauce, and it’s awesome!) We have a very traditional dinner of turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, etc. And then, after Thanksgiving, my husband will make turkey soup, turkey enchiladas, turkey sandwiches … you get the idea! There always seem to be plenty of leftovers!

So, that’s our Thanksgiving. Nothing fancy or unique, but it’s a day we look forward to spending together and being grateful for each other. What do you love about Thanksgiving?
