15 Ways to Celebrate Thanksgiving at Home

We love to celebrate holidays, and in our house, Thanksgiving is a favorite.  We enjoy time together with family and good food to eat, but most importantly, we enjoy a no-rush day (we all bring something for the meal, and our host enjoys the meal prep so it’s a win/win for us).

“I’ve always been a huge fan of series.  It turns somebody into having a reading habit, going back to the same characters.”
