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…
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!
