Much of the food served at modern Thanksgiving dinners includes items from the very first celebration: turkey, ham, dressing, potatoes, numerous other vegetables, bread and puddings.
Initially this meal was held to thank God for the blessings of a good crop, having food for the winter.
Thanksgiving is a very family oriented holiday. Relatives often travel great distances to be with each other to celebrate. Thanksgiving is the busiest travel time of the entire year.
This year our Thanksgiving is taking a new path. We have always celebrated Thanksgiving with my husbands family. But with the home going of my Mother in Love this past spring, we must all start making our own new family traditions.
What are your plans for this Thanksgiving?
May your Thanksgiving be a time of joy and blessings.
