Thanksgiving Traditions and Outfits

Turkey day is less than a week away. Are you ready? Do you have plans for the weekend after? Do you know what you are wearing?

Hopefully, you will get together with family or friends to celebrate. I enjoy holiday traditions when family and friends gather together. Some Thanksgiving traditions include participating in a family walk or run, family games, family movies, watching football (or having a family football game), watching the parade, sharing what you are thankful for, and shopping (on Friday and Saturday).


The Food:

Sitting down together to enjoy: turkey, mashed potatoes, veggies, wine, and pie.

A family walk or run.

My family gets up early to participate in an organized run on Thanksgiving day. The last one we did was in 2019; we might be switching to a nonorganized family walk/run.

We’ve had some planned group activities that change yearly, including going to the movies, watching movies at home, shopping on Friday and Saturday, and visiting a local museum.
