This has a lot to do with my childhood memories. Dad and I would sit in front of the television watching the entire parade as the various floats, bands, march, balloons and Santa Claus as the climax. We would be so excited to the creativity on TV and be glad about it. Even today, sometimes we either stay home and watch it on the television or go and watch it live.
The tradition calls for a lot of things out of which we practice some and have forgotten the others. It is more of a chaotic holiday now because the females stay up all night preparing for the buffet hosted by the family the next day and more of it. The tradition calls for a relaxed morning breakfast, watching the parade, start preparing for the glazed stuffed turkey and the other delicacies, greet the guests, sit down to say grace, have supper and share gifts. With these traditions, I love the dinner part, sharing memories together and the gifts exchange. My wife bought me a pair of male underwear, that too a sexy men’s bikini underwear. I hope she gets something spicier this time.
Without the love and presence of the family, no holiday or celebration is complete. It is with their love and care that even the ordinary days are made special. I remember one year my sister was not able to come back home her college (hostel) for the vacation. It was like there was no celebration at home at all and on the other hand, my sister felt lonely because the rest of us were together. So, keeping the family in the center of the celebrations is essential.
Like it was mentioned above that I love gifts, Thanksgiving is all about sharing gifts with each other. Being a popular tradition, it is also a time when you have to spend time thinking of what to give the other. With all sorts of options available on the internet, you can also choose what can you buy for your family members, relatives, and friends.
These are the aspects that make the holiday a lot special than it is. Remember them when you involve with your guests and make sure that you be thankful for all you have. You can know more about Thanksgiving here.
