Sunday Social: All about Thanksgiving

Sunday Social

This week on the Sunday Social, it's all about Thanksgiving.  Whilst thanksgiving is a US festival, I usually mark it in some way - work on the origins of the holiday with the boys, a Thanksgiving meal with Rory and Eileen, and a general feeling of thankfulness.  I never really need to be asked twice to count blessings!

Favorite Thanksgiving Memory

My favourite Thanksgiving memory is probably from a few years back, when my class did a 'thankfulness tree'.  It was so beautiful having the kids write done what they were grateful for, and some of their choices were so surprising!

Favorite Thanksgiving Food

Sweet potatoes which marshmallows on top.  Eileen introduced me to them a couple of years ago!

What is a Thanksgiving Tradition you and your family have?

Each Thanksgiving, or around Thanksgiving, I try to email, text or write to my close friends and family, to remind them that I love them and to tell them how thankful I am for them being in my life.

What are you most looking forward to about this Thanksgiving?

I'm looking forward to counting blessings and spending time with some lovely folk.  And then getting ready for Christmas...

  2. Sweet potatoes with marshmallows are my favorite too! It's so nice that you tell the people in your life that you're thankful for them, people don't do that enough in general. Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. I'm beginning to wonder if sweet potatoes with marshmallows is a Southern thing, because I remember having them at Thanksgiving, from as far back as I can remember. Also, I've been teaching for the last 10 years, and always enjoy hearing the students' answers to what they're thankful for. You're right....those answers can be surprising. I've enjoyed reading your post and am now your newest follower. Looking forward to reading more. :-)

  6. My favorite Thanksgiving memory is when my godfather was talking about history and meant to say, "Remember the Alamo," but accidentally said, "Remember the alimony!" We all laughed so hard we nearly choked.

Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!
