LifeSquire Thanksgiving traditions you’ll want to steal

From a traditional meal to afternoon naps, you probably already have your own way of celebrating Thanksgiving. Maybe you follow what your mom has always done, your spouse may have encouraged something new, or maybe a close friend has suggested a change, no matter what you’ve taken the traditions and made them your own.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we asked our Squires what their favorite traditions are, and to be honest, we were overwhelmed with the great ideas.  So if you’re thinking of starting something new to add to your holiday, here are some ways our Squires celebrate:

Tiffanie: My family rents a movie together, and we eat the random appetizers that are in the freezer the night before Thanksgiving.

Ashlyn: We skip the traditional spread, and we have sushi or we grill steaks.

Kayla: We all go play capture the flag in the backyard before Thanksgiving dinner.

Hien: After cooking and cleaning all day, I have my cousins over, and we get to relax and enjoy our time together.

Liz: My favorite tradition is that we eat brisket instead of turkey.

Kaci: I love to break the wishbone with my mom.

Mitch: My brother and I cook Thanksgiving dinner for my siblings and parents, and we don’t have to do anything after 3 p.m.

Ally: I love watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade every year with all of my nieces and nephews.

Chelsi: My brother, my Dad, and I sneak out of the house early in the morning to go play golf.

Kasie: Every year we do a game night with my husband’s family. We bring appetizers and hang out and have a lot of fun.
