Thanksgiving is a joyful time to gather all of your family, yes even those annoying cousins Julie and Brain that you see once a year, and enjoy a feast in honor of togetherness. This long held holiday has been passed down to generations of Americans and each one added its own new tradition that we come to know today.
So many traditions that we take for granted that we don’t really notice them because they come natural to us! We’re talking about everything from decor to typical thanksgiving recipes!
Now let’s see if you have any of these thanksgiving family traditions in your home.
Everyone knows that thanksgiving is turkey season, but what are do go to’s for thanksgiving home decor? Well the main colors for this holiday are beige, brown, white, orange and more brown. However, despite the color combo you can do awesome little project to liven up your home and impress your guests.
P.S. Don’t forget to break out that gravy boat you got at your wedding!
Ah yes the thanksgiving school play where proud parents gather with their smart phone and go live on facebook recording there tiny first grader dressed a broccoli.
For many of us it was our first taste of theatre! The entire class dressed up as veggies, a turkey, pilgrims and Native Americans telling a very short version of the tale of thanksgiving!
Now really what what day is thanksgiving other than a giant spread of food surrounded by hungry-starving family? Because you KNOW they haven’t eaten to make room for such a meal!
Well, in case you didn’t know the history of thanksgiving is one of “happy endings” emerging from tragedy and famine set in 17 century America. It turns out that those pilgrims in your kid’s school play had a very rough start in order to get to America. Originally this pilgrims were persecuted by the English Anglican Church because of their religious beliefs. After fleeing to Holland they heard how other european settlers were practicing their beliefs freely and so the journey began.
It wasn’t easy at all since the voyage was a rocky one and once they arrived almost a month later, the terrain and weather conditions were harsh! Almost half of the population died from exposure and disease. After around a year of pain and famine, the nobel tribe of Patuxet decided to help these newcomers learn about the land, how to hunt, crop, build and basically how to live in this new land.
After a bountiful harvest there was a big feast to celebrate their survival, where 90 Native Americans and 53 pilgrims attended bringing pheasants, deer and hogs! They celebrated together for three days and two nights giving thanks! They lived together as neighbors for more than 50 years!
