The entire Hogshead family has been celebrating Thanksgiving the same way since I was born.
We gather in the same house where I grew up. We sit at the dinner table, passing the same gravy bowl, eating homemade gravy and cranberry relish.
And when pumpkin pie is served, we each choose whether to top it with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Me, I tap into my Passion Advantage by choosing… both. And double helpings of both, no less!
As I get ready for the holidays, I’m thankful for my family of Hogsheads.
I’m grateful to have YOU in my world.
And, I’m grateful for double helpings of whipped cream AND ice cream.
We celebrated Thanksgiving with my wife's family in Maryland last year. Fun to finally do it in America like I'd always hoped to do since I's a kid who read too many books about elsewhere in the world 🙂
This year it's back here in good ole New Zealand - much better weather but no Thanksgiving vibe in the air.
I celebrated Canadian thanksgiving a month go and fell into the Brexit Abyss - a potent reminder that all things political should be avoided like the plague.
Great articles and great layout. Your blog post deserves all of the positive feedback it’s been getting. rasmalai recipe
Thanksgiving with my wife's family has been like Groundhog Day for the last 21 years. You know exactly what activities, conversations and meals are happening at any moment (Wed-Sun). I'm grateful to have attended for so long. I play the Mystique card, by hiding out baking pie on Thursday. In the last 2 years, I pulled the Innovation trigger by changing up the menu for Saturday night.
When shopping for Thanksgiving ingredients from our market, I end up grabbing several bags of chestnuts, peanuts, sunflower seeds, anything we can feed to the winter mammals outside. It's part of our tradition to toss them some food in the morning then watch them go at it during the day. The checkout folks inevitably ask what the heck I need two bags of chestnuts for. Thank goodness we live in a liberal region, I only get strange looks once in a while.
One of my favorite traditions is going around the table after dinner and saying what we were thankful for during the year! After the first few years, our nieces and nephews starting thinking about their "speeches" in advance.Everyone participated, parents, siblings, and nieces, and nephews, and guests! The comments always surprised me! It left everyone feeling very Thankful and closer.
On the drive to our friends house for Thanksgiving, each family member states what he/she is thankful for this year.
I cut out a lot of paper leaves and have everyone write what they're thankful for and tape it to the 'Gratitude Wall'. As the evening goes on and more wine is consumed the leaves get more and more entertaining. 🙂
The "adult table" and the "kids table"...and we kids always put the olives on our fingers! Now we're all grown up with kids (some of them adults) and the celebrations are spread out...which allows building some new traditions - we celebrated Thanksgiving three weeks ago when one of the kids could be in town. There's some Rebellion!
