I have fond memories of Thanksgivings long ago. Here are 3 things I remember when I was a kid…
- Smelling the food cooking all day and thinking, “Are we EVER going to get to eat?”
I DO NOT like giblet gravy or pumpkin pie, but I LOVE cranberry sauce. As a kid, Thanksgiving was the only time of year that I was allowed to put a HUGE glob of sugary jelly on my plate, then eat it with a fork and no one gave me flack about it? That, I thought, was a great reason to give thanks.
And finally, Thanksgiving meant the start of the Christmas season. We could beg mom all we wanted, but the tree didn’t go up until after Thanksgiving.
I’d love to know, what do you remember about the Thanksgivings you had as a child?
We got to put the tree up early this past weekend because Taylor was home. YEA!
