    We always go to my aunt and uncle's house, eat a huge dinner, and then play BINGO!!

    Making homemade Fritti (Italian donuts) on holiday mornings. Yum.

    After we have dinner we go to the movies on Thanksgiving day.

  4. Alesia says:

    We always play Trivial Pursuit after dinner. Two teams: Crips (married into the family) vs. Bloods (born into the family). It gets pretty riotous!

    A hike in the woods on Thanksgiving with our five boys, just us and nature, so peaceful!

    My favorite Thanksgiving traditions are my Mom cooking an enormous lunch (of course), scouring the ads for Black Friday deals and planning our shopping trip with my siblings, and the afternoon nap on the couch while the football game is on. Very normal…. but it's perfect!

    My family is vegetarian, so (because none of us have loved any tofu turkey we have tried), we do appetizers, side dishes, and pie. Luckily we always thought those were the best parts, anyway!

    Once we've stuffed ourselves, my younger brother and I (since we were just kids) lay down under the table and groan and complain and laugh until it no longer feels uncomfortable to do so. Usually the dog joins us.

    We always go and see a family movie thanks giving day while the turkey is cooking, and I love silver bells
