Some of my happiest memories were spent at the holidays surrounded by one set of my family or another. I always considered myself lucky because I would get to feast first at one parent’s house, then at the other. Maybe that has something to do with the fact that I get quickly burned out on turkey and dressing now, getting to eat twice on the holidays.
No matter what was served during the holiday season, I always enjoyed seeing family more than anything. The games of football we would play, the stories we would tell, and the songs we’d sing—generally, the memories we made.
I would love to hear stories of your favorite Thanksgiving memories. So, I want to challenge you, my reader, to regal me with a remarkable family memory you have. Make me feel like I am there with you. Let me see the memory through your eyes.

Come near, sit a spell, and listen to tales of old as I sit and rock by my fire. I'll serve you some cocoa and cookies as I tell you of the time long gone by when your Greats-greats once lived.
Excellent work. Looking forward to reading more!
On-point and relevant
