If you’re like many Americans, odds are you or your family are traveling in order to be together on Thanksgiving. The holiday feast is only a few weeks away, but it isn’t too late to come up with a new family tradition. We here at Jack Matia Honda would like to share some of our favorite Thanksgiving family traditions.
Eat a Big Breakfast
While many families choose to fast in order to save room for some delicious turkey, others indulge themselves with a hearty breakfast. As it turns out, a big breakfast makes for a great start to the Thanksgiving festivities! Make sure to add eggs, bacon, pancakes, waffles, and pie to the Thanksgiving menu this year.
Remember Loved Ones
Giving thanks is the whole point of Thanksgiving, but the holiday can also be a day of remembrance. As family travels from throughout the country, make it a point to sit down and remember loved ones who have since passed away. Cherish their memories, tell heartfelt stories, and take a moment of silence. You may even learn a thing or two about your family.
Have Thanksgiving Dinner…for Dinner
Did you ever think it was a little odd that most families have their Thanksgiving dinner in the afternoon? While there’s a reason for it, why not simply have Thanksgiving dinner for dinner? Setting out a plate of snacks can help tide over hungry relatives, assuming the big breakfast didn’t fill them up, of course!
