The meal is
complete, the dishes are done and it's time to be with your family
and friends. This is one of the few nights of the year where
everyone can be together and people don't have to scatter after
eating. Here are some ideas that are sure to keep everyone
entertained and smiling.
Make a Family
Thanksgiving is the perfect holiday for family, and you
should take advantage of having everyone together in one place with
this activity. Gather everyone together after the meal and start
drawing out your own family tree. You can create a memento to keep
forever, and in the process, you are sure to learn things about your
family that you never knew before. What a wonderful way to get all
generations to spend some time together!

Thanksgiving be without football? There is something very
comforting about sitting on the couch with friends and family
and watching a game. Just make sure you have plenty of snack
foods around for everyone to enjoy. Remember the holidays are
no time to be watching your
Keeping the Children Busy
the meal and cleaning up afterwards, one way to keep the kids
entertained is to put in a good children's movie. Whether it's an
old classic like Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas or a hot
new release like the Little Mermaid II, this is always a good way to
keep the kids out of the kitchen.
To burn all those calories off, perhaps the
best thing would be to get a little bit of exercise. A touch
football game with family and friends is the perfect idea. No need
to get too competitive. Just choose sides and have a bit of fun on a
grassy field. Don't forget to bring the camera so you can capture
the memories for years to come!
102 Pilgrims that arrived in America, only 51 survived the
first winter. Amazingly, only four of the married women
survived. They were responsible for preparing the first
Thanksgiving feast. They made enough for 91 Native Americans
and 52 Englishmen and women.
