Happy Thanksgiving all! I hope you have a wonderful day. While the day is about giving thanks, we all have our traditions beyond that. As for my family, the day always included a spread of food that would feed 30 or more with enough leftovers to get through the weekend. The feast was followed by bonfires and rousing games of poker in the evenings. Those days are gone though as our family had drifted apart over the years. So instead I moved into making new traditions of our own. Smaller, but still tasty meals, family time and the occasional game and spear headed from my husbands side, watching A Christmas Story. Really, I loathe the movie, but the smile on my husbands face is enough to torture myself with at least one viewing.

So, what is your favorite tradition? Has it changed over the years?
