top 5 tuesday: thanksgiving stuff

Thanksgiving used to not be one of my favorite holidays because I just thought of it as Christmas' less flashy and uglier cousin. Today, I really enjoy it because it's very much about food, family and thankfulness instead of worrying about gift-giving and lots of traveling like on Christmas. Because today is Thanksgiving Adam (Adam comes before Eve), I'm posting my top 5 Thanksgiving memories/foods/activities.

1. Football. This is an annual family tradition to watch the football games that are on tv. And this year, my Saints are playing the love-or-hate Dallas Cowboys, so it'll be even better!

2. Christmas Decorating. Usually, we help my parents put up their Christmas tree and decorations on this day.

3. Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. We usually always watch this in the morning while the food is cooking. It's fun to see some of the floats and bands that I remember watching from my childhood.

4. Christmas music. This is the day that most people agree it's acceptable to start playing Christmas music. AND, it's usually on lots of radio stations, so it stays on most of the day!!

5. Leftover Turkey Sandwiches. White bread, turkey & ketchup. Amazing.


  1. I'm thinking I like Thanksgiving a lot more these days too. It's a day off just to be with family and friends you don't get to see that often. That's better than presents, really.

  2. #5 Digusting! Ketchup...really?


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
