Thanksgiving Traditions to Start


Many families have Thanksgiving traditions they do every year, even if they don’t really think of them as traditions.  Some are rather easy: they fix a specific dish, for example.  Some families use dishes that have been handed down for years.  Others use traditional recipes for certain dishes.

If you don’t have any Thanksgiving Day traditions, it’s not too late to start one.  You can create any tradition you want.  The only important thing is that you do it each year on Thanksgiving.  Some traditions are simple, such as saying what you’re thankful for each year before you eat.  You may even decide your family’s “tradition” is to skip the traditional formal dinner with turkey and dressing in favor of getting Chinese takeaway or making homemade pizza.  You can create whatever Thanksgiving tradition you want!

Thanksgiving Decorating

With Thanksgiving coming up, many people have started putting out their decorations for the holiday.  What have you been decorating with?  For Thanksgiving, many people pull out decorations from these three categories: fall colors, turkeys, and pilgrims.

Fall colors are the easiest Thanksgiving decorations to find.  For one thing, you’ll start seeing napkins, table cloths, and placemats in fall colors as early as mid-August.  You can use these decorations for several months before Thanksgiving, so they’re very versatile, too.  The different reds, golds, yellows, oranges, and browns can even be threaded throughout your home to give you a cohesive theme.  In addition to items in these colors, you can include pumpkins, gourds, fall leaves, branches, pine cones, and fall flowers.

The turkey is the animal associated with Thanksgiving, and as such, it appears on a number of different items.  You’ll find small plastic turkeys, salt and pepper shakers shaped like turkeys, turkey napkin rings, turkeys on tablecloths, and much more.  Some of them are realistic, while some are more cartoonish.  Whichever you like, you’ll be able to choose from a number of cute turkey decorations.

Finally, many people like to include pilgrim decorations in their Thanksgiving theme.  Based on the story of the first Thanksgiving, popular pilgrims are usually depicted dressed in black and white formal clothing, and generally they feature both a man and a woman pilgrim.  Again, some are cartoonish, while others are more serious images.

Many people like to mix and match these three themes.  They might go with solid fall colors for the tablecloth and napkins but add a centerpiece featuring pilgrims, for example.  Be creative and go with Thanksgiving decorative items that match your home and create the holiday look you like the most.
