Family-Filled Thanksgiving Traditions

The much-anticipated all-American holiday full of tradition with family and friends is nearly upon us. From quirky family favorites to time-honored classics, Thanksgiving traditions often make for the most memorable moments; not just because they’re familiar, but because they serve as reminders of all those you hold dear, or are welcoming into the family’s embrace.

In many households, clan traditions are held in high esteem, with little deviation from year-to-year. However, just as what constitutes a family has really evolved over the last few decades, a multitude of diet plans and/or food restrictions has dictated reevaluation of the T-Day menu. Your guests may include vegans, pescatarians, turkey-haters, vegetable-haters, keto followers and gluten-free dieters.

One thing is certain, the feast is all about giving thanks for what we have and blessings for those who are less fortunate. So destress and let everyone pitch in a hand, whether it be making part of the meal, setting the table, preparing the drinks station, or making that beautiful centerpiece which is sure to bring smiles to the faces around the table.

Now, have you decided who will give the time-honored tradition of making the toast before the meal begins??
