Every year, we celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday on the fourth Thursday of November. Most families follow traditions begun on the first Thanksgiving, but many have their own traditions that they follow each year. Here are some of the common traditions associated with “Turkey Day.”

 

Such as traditional foods. Traditional foods are a large part of Thanksgiving celebrations. Many families include the entire family in the food preparation. Traditional foods include turkey, stuffing, gravy, sweet potatoes, cornbread, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce. Many people serve pie for dessert at the end of the meal. Popular pie flavors are pumpkin, pecan, sweet potato, and apple. We asked some Grizzlies what are some of their traditions.

 

Senior Brandon Duarte, said, “Every year we make a homemade pie, every year we alternate choosing the flavors these years it is my sisters turn.”

Senior Jesus Campos said, “Before Thanksgiving, my family and I go hunting for deer.”

Freshman Isabella Narvarte, said, “Like most families, we all sit together and enjoy each other

company before we eat we go around the table and say what we are thankful for.”

 

Sophomore Adrianna Cuatlacuatl, said, “Since most of my family isn’t here, we tend to always call my family and make them know how thankful we are to have them even if it’s hard to see them every year.”

    Spending time with our family and enjoying a nice dinner together at the dinner table is an extremely eminent tradition on the one day out of the whole year where all of us spend our day repleted with gratefulness. It is always enjoyable to share each others tradition on the day we give our thank as we could also express our indiscriminate opinion on what builds up to a perfect Thanksgiving evening or dinner. We can argue which pie is best for the holiday or if a turkey is even the best option to be included in a Thanksgiving meal even with the turkey being a generational tradition.

    It is always important to share our gratitude, love and appreciation for family and friends. I believe we should not take each other for granted, and show some “thanksgiving” daily.
