When I was growing up – and even now – Thanksgiving meant family story time… time to laugh, cry, learn and remember.
Here are some ideas from Oprah on how to start some new and unique Thanksgiving traditions:
Put out a poster or big sheet of paper with sharpies nearby and invite each guest at your dinner to write down what they’re thankful for this year. That way, everyone can stay focused on the true meaning of the holiday, gratitude. And you’ve got a great keepsake too!
And when you ask your elders to share family stories at the table, make sure you record them on video – on your phone or a camera if you’ve got one. Those memories will last for generations and you’ll find them so helpfulif you ever research your family tree.
Here's to creating memories that last!
