What are Your Thanksgiving Traditions?

By grandparenting 3 years agoNo Comments

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThanksgiving is a good time to encourage our grandchildren to be thankful for the many things they experience. Help them make a list of their home, food, clothing, school, friends, church, toys and the opportunities they enjoy for which they can be thankful. Gratitude always improves ones attitude. Send them a Thanksgiving card or call them to let them know you thank God for them and you are thankful they are your grandchildren and you are praying for them.

Our Thanksgiving Tradition
At our family Thanksgiving dinner, when we have our dessert we place a candle that clips on everyone’s dessert plate. Then we light the candle and go around the table sharing from the youngest to the oldest, for what we are thankful. After each one shares, they blow out their candle. It has become a tradition and a meaningful family experience.

Will you please share your Thanksgiving ideas and traditions in the comments?
Let’s make Thanksgiving a meaningful experience for our families.
