TwitterMoms and Target want to know the three Thanksgiving traditions you are or plan to pass down to your children.
I never really thought much of our Thanksgiving traditions until entering this contest. I was actually surprised to find that I'm passing down traditions that I wasn't even aware of! :)
Tradition 1: Watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. I've been doing this since I was a young girl -before the days of cable television in rural areas - and still enjoying it with my four children.
Tradition 2: Dine with extended family at my parents, with my new favorite tradition of FRIED turkey - it's awesome! While the turkey fries, the men do a little target shooting while the women chat.
Tradition 3: Putting up the Christmas tree - although with Princess A on the (destructive) move this year, we may wait until closer to Christmas this year. Any other time, though, I love putting it up on Thanksgiving day to kick off the month (or so) till Christmas.
