I was just thinking how much traditions and such have changed since I was a kid, when I was younger we loaded up and went over to my Grannies house on Thanksgiving, had a huge meal with our families and ran around with the cousins while the adults sat around and discussed major subjects like how much food they had consumed, half of them actually dozed off during the discussions and the other half just began talking to someone else.
The next day was the beginning of left over Turkey week, this I always looked forward to, as I do love turkey, leftovers are something I was never ashamed of as most meals are better the next day.
Now days things may be pretty much the same, if you take away the size of the gatherings and add in running out to the nearest store in hopes of finding a good bargain, rather than sleeping off that belly full of turkey.
Black Friday almost plays a bigger role at Thanksgiving time, even more than turkey and football, I’m not going to go into a big post bashing Black Friday this year, all I want to say is Happy Thanksgiving to each and every one of you.
Whether you choose to sleep off your turkey hangover, watch a good football game, or run out right after dinner to find a good deal, I ask you to think back on people no longer with us like my Granny, and to be thankful for the traditions they shared with you, and also look at or think of that youngster in your family, because this is who the traditions you are creating today will carry them on in the future.
What are your plans right after the big meal?
