Tell me your favorite Thanksgiving tradition for a prize of 3 mill! Whether it's a get together with family or a favorite recipe you always make...whatever! :)

Canadian Thanksgiving counts as well, and if you don't celebrate Thankgiving, tell us a favorite fall tradition!

My favorite tradition is more of a pre-holiday tradition. My mom and aunts and I and whatever other cousins that are around get together every year to make huge batches of Norwegian lefse, so that everyone will then be able to have some to serve for both Thanksgiving and Christmas.Β 

For the interested parties wondering what lefse is - CLICKY


This event ends on Saturday, Nov 26th at 11:59pm!

We used to have big family gatherings, butttt this year everyone is mad at each other apparently lol. But usually we all go to my grandma's house. Everyone brings a side dish except for me because I won't put my family through my cooking. My husband's side of the family is much nicer than mine though, they have a big gathering there and they are far better cooks. My aunt on his side makes this AMAZING potato casserole. It's like, cubed potatoes mixed with mashed potatoes mixed with cheese from the gods and topped with cornflakes. So good.

My families tradition was to go to Cracker Barrel! Everyone gets what they want to eat, noone has to do dishes, and noone is stuck with leftovers taking over their fridge.Β 
Steph's family tradition was to cook a stupid big meal that hardly got eaten and then pick on left overs for a week until they ultimately get tossed LOLΒ 

So, I've made her adopt my Cracker Barrel tradition for Thanksgiving, but I compromised and we did the big meal for ChristmasΒ

My favorite Thanksgiving tradition is simply just getting together with everyone and being able to enjoy the time spent together. A good portion of it is cooking, but a small percentage is also spent chatting, enjoying a glass of wine or for my common law partner figuring out ways he can slightly startle his Grandma. The next day is usually spent trying to Iron Chef the leftovers into something else for the next week. :P

Since I've moved away on top of the era of COVID I haven't been able to do many traditional Thanksgiving in a few years. My family is huge so we usually have about 40 for dinner. We used to rotate through each uncles house but one of my favorite years was renting a hotel on the beach and having a dinner at a resort my grandpa used to work at when he was young.Β

Every year one house hosts (me).Β  We have an afternoon of a fire, card games, and sometimes smash bros.Β  Then turkey until we pop, and pie!Β  My favourite part is the card games :)

No Thanksgiving here in the UK, and I don't have any autumn traditions. However, when I was a kid, I used to love collecting "conkers" (horse chestnut nuts) and trying to smash those of my friends.Β

Thank you for including us Canadians!

Did you know, only 2 countries in the world celebrate Thanksgiving. USA and Canada, and they are on different dates and have different reasons LOL

Anyway, our family (the 6 of us, my 4 and my parents), does our final camping trip over Canadian Thanksgiving. The 4 of us tent, and my parents have their trailer, and we roast the turkey outside!Β

I'm in the Uk and we don't really have thanksgiving nor do we do anything special during the Fall.

I do enjoy sitting with a glowing fire on, a blanket wrapped around me, sipping hot chocolate and getting engrossed in a book.Β
