There are some traditions my family has that just make Thanksgiving feel like Thanksgiving. I'm sure a lot of families have traditions that they do every year around this time of year. So here are the things my family does at Thanksgiving.

1.) Watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

Ever since I was little this is one of the first things we would do on Thanksgiving morning. Now, I still sit down and watch it with my mom and sister before getting ready for the rest of the day.

2.) Eat Thanksgiving dinner

This one is a given but Thanksgiving would not be Thanksgiving to me if I didn't meet my family at my aunt's house for Thanksgiving dinner, complete with turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie.

3.) Black Friday shopping

Although this is the day after Thanksgiving, I still consider this part of the whole Thanksgiving weekend. It's such a tradition for me to go Black Friday shopping with my aunt, sister, cousins, and grandma to pick out our Christmas presents. I love doing this because it's like a continuation of the day before and we get to hang out and chat. Look out for my article about where I shop on Black Friday! I'm going to be putting it up tomorrow!

4.) Decorating for Christmas

Most people definitely wouldn't consider this part of their Thanksgiving tradition, but again, it's during what I consider to be the Thanksgiving weekend since my mom, sister, and I get our Christmas tree and decorate for Christmas the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
