Thanksgiving traditions Southerners will never let go of are plentiful. As much as I love Christmas, I have to admit I am partial to certain aspects of Thanksgiving. I think it has something to do with the family gathering and the food, of course. And, I love Fall. Plus, it’s the start of the holidays, with so much more to look forward to. It’s also nice not having the stress of all the shopping and gift buying. Also, just like Christmas, Thanksgiving has many traditions people from all walks of life share.
But, according to Southern Living magazine, Thanksgiving traditions southerners celebrate are unique and deeply rooted. In fact, you hold them so close, you’ll never let go of them. Some of them may be less of a tradition and more of a subconscious habit. In any case, we embrace them just the same. This list reminds us of all those unforgettable moments shared around the table for the biggest feast of the year. I also added a few of my own to the list that I feel, at least in my house, are time-honored traditions. See if you spot any of your family in this list of Thanksgiving traditions southerners are proud to never let go of.
