My family aren't all able to be together at Thanksgiving but we are all together for Christmas. Thanksgiving we have the Stuffed Turkey, Cranberry & celery Stuffing, Pumpkin Pie and Pumpkin Cheesecake, mashed potatoes and grayy and candied yams(yams come from our garden) green beans and Waldorf salad.
While I was teaching I always dressed up for our Thanksgiving at School. I would dress as a Pilgrim Lady (Prudance) or as an Indian Lady( Red Byrd). The children always loved this. And it was something they always remembered.
