Thanksgiving meals: a time for tradition

Written by: Karen Bradner

For most of us, our big meal on the fourth Thursday in November shares the same basic components: turkey, some form of potatoes, stuffing, gravy and pumpkin pie. For some, that and a parade or football game on TV is all that is needed for the perfect Thanksgiving celebration. Others may need to take it up a notch or two, following in the footsteps of their mothers and grandmothers by bringing out the inherited china, polished silver and cherished family recipes. This is a great time of year to honor traditions—whatever they are—and to remember just how important those traditions are to your family.
