Thanksgiving Traditions

With different cultures and world-views come various traditions.  This week, families across the United States will join one another around the table to celebrate Thanksgiving.

As my family joins together there will be the singing of worship songs/hymns, a recitation of what we are each thankful for, and a blessing.  To round out the celebration there will be turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, noodles, rolls, corn, beans, cranberry salad, and maybe even a healthy dose of football.

Our celebration will be a mix of family, cultural, and religious traditions.

As you gather together: 1) How will you celebrate? 2) What traditions combine to make your Thanksgiving celebration uniquely yours?
