As part of Thanksgiving, and showing my thanks, I will be hosting a water park party. Some people may say, “That is not for Thanksgiving.” I have to disagree. It does not matter whether you are on the moon, on the ocean floor or at a water park, if you are with your family and the things you are thankful for, it is a Thanksgiving party! The reason I chose a water park is because well, everybody likes waterparks. But, along with being with friends and family, you need entertainment and food at a party. This is what I chose for that…
One of my college friends who is an American invited me to the Thanksgiving dinner with her family. I had never been to a Thanksgiving dinner before and so I was pretty excited for this party. The first thing I noticed as soon as I reached her home was the sweet smell of the dinner being cooked. My friend opened the door for me and introduced me to her family. Her entire family has come for celebrating the Thanksgiving dinner. I met her Dad, her Mom, and her two sisters. One of her sisters is married and her husband’s side of the family had come for the dinner too.
This may come as a shock, but it is possible to have a healthy Thanksgiving.

This year, we want you to stay as healthy as possible on a day focused on feasting. It’s true, you can enjoy your Thanksgiving Day, all without erasing your good health! Read on for tips on how to have a healthy Thanksgiving!
There are many things that come to mind when I think of Thanksgiving Day traditions. Growing up in rural Oklahoma we did a lot of outdoor activities, no matter what the temperature was. We would shoot clay pigeons, saddle the horses and go for a ride, sit in the deer stand before we stuffed our faces with Thanksgiving lunch, watch Christmas movies while decorating the Christmas Tree. It didn’t matter what we did, I could always count on doing something outside, and doing it with anywhere from fifteen to fifty people. Yes, I have a very large family. These traditions still live on today. We still all love being outside and there still is a large group that attends. I absolutely love my big, crazy family.
Growing up in a middle-class family, we always had more than enough to share, especially during the holidays.
Hope and pray everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with Family and Friends. It was just the three of us this year. I (with the help of my son Jerrid) cooked a ham, turkey (breast), dressing, pea salad, potato salad, rolls, cranberry sauce, and pecan pie. It was so good. I had planned to also have green bean casserole but ran out of steam. I missed Jennifer this year, but she will be home soon. She did have cranberry sauce and stovetop stuffing (not my homemade dressing but better than none) that she took with her to India. Her luggage was slightly over the weight limit and she was going to leave the can of cranberry sauce here. However, the ticket agent saw what she was taking out and told her to leave it in. I would like to say a special
Thanksgiving, the day were we gather our family and friends in one room on one dining table and feast on turkey, mashed potato 's, and many other delicious food and we give thanks of what we have but when did this holiday of turkeys arise and how? The word Thanksgiving originated between 1525 and 1535. The First Thanksgiving was celebrated by Pilgrims and the Native Americans after their first harvest in the New World in October 1621. This celebration feast lasted three days, and—as accounted by Edward Winslow who attended it—it was attended by 90 Native Americans and 53 Pilgrims. The New England colonists were accustomed to regularly celebrating "thanksgivings"—days of prayer thanking God for things such as a military victory or the end of
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
Thanksgiving is very different in many ways to many different people. For example, some people like to eat ham over eating turkey. Others might be that they like apple pie over pumpkin pie. You can also change your thanksgiving by just a simple thing as going Black Friday Shopping or not. Little things about this holiday makes it special in different ways to different people. Thanksgiving is different from the divine food you eat down to the things you do.
Every year every November there is a holiday called Thanksgiving that my family always fails to forget. Every Thanksgiving all of my relatives I mean all meet up at my Nana’s house so we can really put time aside to reconnect. Mostly the holiday is fun a lot of times it can be very dramatic and chaotic i’d say mostly chaotic. But still every single Thanksgiving my family meets up at my grandma’s house no matter what went on during the year it is our responsibility to make it to her house for our annual Thanksgiving feast. Sometimes with everything going on I wonder why we still continue this tradition.
A while ago my future uncle, Randy, attended Thanksgiving with his friend, also my uncle, David. At the time my uncle was a young twenty year old who was rather blunt and lacked a great deal of compassion. He had no family and whenever he asked a question and said ‘I’m asking for a friend’ everyone would be like ‘Liar! You have no friends” save my Uncle David who was his friend and was bring him to Thanksgiving.
Food is such a huge part of the holiday season so it just makes sense that Thanksgiving is my family’s favorite. My home has become the gathering place for all of our holiday meals since it is big enough to accommodate our extended families. Without a plan, cooking the entire meal alone can be quite a stressful ordeal. However, with careful planning, organization and early preparation of classic dishes, the day of Thanksgiving can be easy, enjoyable and stress free.
Thanksgiving. This was a time of year that I really enjoyed. I got to see family that I normally never see and to this day am still confused exactly how I am related to most of them. Despite that I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed the people, the food, and as cheesy as it sounds the loving atmosphere that it came with. During this given Thanksgiving, I was about 12. I really enjoyed football and liked going down to Samford where my Great Uncle lived to watch football enjoy family time and eat amazing food. My sister and who are around the same age have been doing this for as long as I can remember because everyone else if much older than us. I would say hello to my Great Aunt and Uncle and other much older relatives as we arrived but then would
Thanksgiving is coming, and I want ask you if you know, what does it mean ?
