Last year, my boyfriend decided to invite a bunch of friends to share Thanksgiving with us. This changed the dynamic of our Thanksgiving from a small (6 person) family get-together, to a large boisterous “party.”

Now, every year we have about 13 people over for Thanksgiving- and we have a GRAND time. The day is always full of laughter, fun and very full stomachs.

It just so happens that there are 2 birthdays in our family right around that time, so we end up having a joint birthday/Thanksgiving party.
Here are some of our fun traditions:
1. Big Thanksgiving Meal (DUH!!)

2. Volleyball (None of us are excellent/very good at the sport, so the game is very light and we all have a lot of laughs!)

3. A pinata – a surprising amount of fun for the adults (and any kids involved). Blindfolds are a must! Also, it is important to be able to change the position of the pinata…

4.Catch Phrase

If you haven’t heard of this game, click on the picture above for more information.

This game is a TON of fun and always results in a lot of laughs- though it is more appropriate for teenagers and adults.

5. Finally, we choose a movie and watch it. This is a nice ending to a long and active day!
I’d love to hear about your Thanksgiving Traditions! Please share!
