Feast, Family, and Fun: Thanksgiving Traditions


Creating new Thanksgiving traditions can be a wonderful way to bring fresh and meaningful experiences to the holiday. Here are some of our favorite ideas to inspire new Thanksgiving traditions:

  1. Gratitude Tree: Set up a “gratitude tree” where family members can write down things they are thankful for on leaves and hang them on branches. This can be a beautiful and visual way to express gratitude.
  2. Volunteer as a Family: Consider spending part of the day volunteering together at a local charity or community organization. This can be a meaningful way to give back and create lasting memories.
  3. Outdoor Activities: If weather permits, incorporate outdoor activities into your Thanksgiving traditions. You could go for a family hike, play a game of touch football, or simply take a nature walk to appreciate the beauty of the season.
  4. Potluck Thanksgiving: Instead of one person or family preparing the entire meal, make Thanksgiving a potluck event. Each guest or family can contribute a dish, making it a collaborative and shared effort.
  5. Thanksgiving Jar: Throughout the month of November, encourage family members to write down things they are thankful for on small pieces of paper and place them in a “Thanksgiving jar.” During the Thanksgiving meal, take turns reading these notes aloud.
  6. Family Recipe Exchange: Share and exchange family recipes. Each year, pick a new theme or type of dish to focus on. This can be a fun way to try new things and build a collection of favorite recipes.
  7. Memory Lane: Take a trip down memory lane by looking through old photo albums or home videos. Share stories and memories from past Thanksgivings, creating a sense of nostalgia and connection.
  8. Game Night: Turn Thanksgiving into a game night with board games, card games, or even a friendly trivia competition. This can be a great way to engage everyone in an enjoyable and lighthearted atmosphere.
  9. Create a Thanksgiving Playlist: Put together a playlist of songs that everyone in the family enjoys. Play it throughout the day to add a festive and personalized touch to the celebration.
  10. Thanksgiving Craft Corner: Set up a crafting area where family members can create Thanksgiving-themed crafts. This can be a great way to involve children and add a creative element to the day.

Remember, the most important thing is to spend quality time together and express gratitude in a way that feels authentic and meaningful for your family. Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at the Sibbach Team!
