Anyway, in this particular case, he happens to be right. Thanksgiving has literally become about gorging on unhealthy amounts of food. There's no deeper meaning for many people! That stinks! There should be more to it than just devouring food and needing to find bigger pants afterward.
I don't profess to know exactly how to fix this, even in my own family, but I will. Just watch! What I would like to do is start a new tradition that celebrates the meaning behind the Holiday as well as family togetherness. I'm open to ideas, so let em rip! I'd love to hear what my readers do to make the holiday special and NOT just about food.
Facebook friends, please consider commenting on this post rather than on facebook, so that if some of my readers would also like suggestions but are not on my facebook, they will be able to see them too.
I'm also going to do some searching on Google later to see what ideas I can find there and I will post them here in the coming days.
