    A Little nutty – But to kick off the holiday season every Thanksgiving my mother always set the table with her 12 days of Christmas plates and when everyone has finished eating we sing the 12 days of Christmas :) Each person singing whatever number plate they have! Its a crazy tradition and i remember the 1st time my now husband joined us he looked at me a little strange. But its a great laugh and a great kick off to the holidays! Ill carry on this tradition forever!

    Tradition is lots of great food with my husbands family & mine AND don't forget FOOTBALL. Both grandma's mashed potatoes and gravy are the best.

    Oyster dressing at thanksgiving; mushroom rice at Christmas- we always served buffet style to avoid hot dishes being passed between the very young and very 'experienced'! Grandmother always made us line up, "age before beauty"…

    We go on our Christmas tree hunt…trudging in several feet of snow at 8000 ft elevation to find the perfect one, only to have to trudge back while dragging the tree!

    Our family tradition is to run a 5k charity race on Thanksgiving day together!

    Going to my sisters house which is located on our family farm and spending time with the family!

  8. Heather says:

    Our Thanksgiving tradition is enjoying good food and Detroit Lions football with family, passing down those cherished memories and traditions of holiday time with the kids. Baby it's Cold Outside is a favorite, we are all big fans of Elf. Of course, all my mom's recipes are memorable, her stuffing and green bean casserole are wonderful, not to mention her unbelievable homemade cranberry sauce. Happy Holidays!
