In November of 2007, Colleen Santoro of Franklin Park, New Jersey remembered a family Thanksgiving tradition:
In our family we celebrate the Thanksgiving day tradition of receiving our Christmas pajamas from Grandma after dinner. Every year the grand kids would look forward to new pajamas to wear on Christmas Eve and while unwrapping gifts on Christmas morning. Grandma still has Thanksgiving at her house, and all the grand kids still open Christmas pajamas after dinner. I'm 27and STILL getting Christmas pajamas.
In 2007, Jamie West of Johnson City, Tennessee remembered how his family celebrated Thanksgiving when he was a boy:
When I was a young boy, my father would take my brother and me squirrel hunting after our HUGE Thanksgiving dinner ... We tromped through the woods; crunching through the fallen leaves and talking loudly. It's no wonder why no animals were ever harmed in this tradition ... Just a good way to bond and walk off all that great food!
In 2007, Kathleen Barr Blaess of Snellville, Georgia remembered a family Thanksgiving tradition:
We have a funny Thanksgiving tradition that started with my mom and my uncle in 1933. Every year someone gets surprised with the caboose of the turkey hidden under his or her mashed potatoes! You know – the last part of the turkey to go over a fence! Most of the time it's my mom who gets the surprise; but, no matter who gets it, a scream and laughter are guaranteed afterwards!!!
Trees may be the most important form of plant life on earth. Trees add beauty to parks and give shelter to animals. Tree roots help store water and keep the soil from washing away in rainstorms. Different types of trees provide wood, paper, food and medicines. One of the most important things a tree does is clean up the air. Trees absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen. It is oxygen that people need to breathe. People can thank trees for a lot more than shade!
First we used a rope to raise the wood up into the tree. Next, our parents helped us make a frame for the floor. We nailed boards to the frame. Then the walls and roof went up. Finally, to celebrate, we had a picnic in our new tree house!
So…let’s get started!!!
