Most of us already have our “ways” of doing Thanksgiving — ways our mother did it, ways our extended family did it, ways our neighborhood did it. Thanksgiving doesn’t lend itself well to trying out new things, but sometimes the situation calls for new decisions — you can’t make it home for Thanksgiving, for example, or you have a family now and want to start traditions of your own. So what can you do to heighten, deepen, and extend Thanksgiving to its most memorable end?
You might try out different dishes and switch up your table settings, but there’s one thing about Thanksgiving that will always stay the same: sharing the holiday with the friends and family you love the most. These Thanksgiving traditions will help make Turkey Day even more memorable year after year.
