Thanksgiving Traditions

Soooo here is MY tradition. I created it myself a few years ago. I recall once that my cousin told me her first Thanksgiving from home was awful. She told me you really miss your family and it's rough.  But, after a couple of memorable Thanksgivings where I busted a hump to get home, not sleep in my bed and see my parents stress and get into an argument one year over potatoes, I decided it really wasn't worth it for one meal together.  Now I cherish the time I'm with people all year long and often I spend most of Thanksgiving alone.

I get many invitations to people's dinners since they are aware that I don't have family here and they want to share the holiday.  Great! but give me the morning-where I now I have tea with milk and scones with clotted cream and jam.  I sit in my pj's and enjoy the tea and watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

I've watched the parade since I was a kid.  Mom didn't realize til last night I always loved it since it gave me a pulse and preview of what was on Broadway.  Between that and the Radio City Rockettes it really sums up what and where I wanted to be when I grew up.  Although I haven't made it New York- to live and work that is- I still love to bring the childhood and adult tradition together. _______________________ _________________________________
