The month of November brings the celebration of Thanksgiving. Every family has a tradition during this time. I am going to explore different traditions around the US.
Most cities have a Turkey Trot the morning of Thanksgiving. Get your run or walk in before you settle onto the couch for a day of family time.
After running or walking in the Turkey Trot, you can settle in for some excitement of the Macy’s Day Thanksgiving Parade. This parade tradition has been around since 1924.
The Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth, Massachusetts hosts a model English Village Thanksgiving Day celebration. The historical food adds the perfect touch.
If you are from Philadelphia then the oldest parade is your stop on Thanksgiving.
The Jamestown Settlement in Virginia, boasts a learning time of a traditional Thanksgiving feast but offers what we know today for the feast such as roast turkey instead of cured venison.
A tradition some families are starting to hand down to their kids is to spend the day volunteering to serve a Thanksgiving meal to those who don’t have a place to celebrate Thanksgiving.
Those from South Carolina spend Thanksgiving Blessing the Hounds. This is a tradition they have been doing for over 100 years.
