Sometimes, it seems we get a bit of the Thanksgiving holiday letdowns immediately after the meal is finished. But this year, I want to offer you some ideas to keep the joy and thanksgiving flourishing all day long!
Make a Family Blessing Tree
While making a Blessing Tree is a tradition we typically do a week or two before Thanksgiving, you could certainly take time after the meal to make one with your guests. Or even simply take the time to reflect on the year and all you’ve been thankful for.
Go for a walk or play a game outside
It has been our tradition for years to walk after the meal. I suppose it makes us feel justified in eating more than we ought if we burn a few calories afterward. A lot of families have a friendly game of HORSE or football on the front lawn after the meal. Whatever it is, you are doing it together, and that’s the fun of it!
