Thanksgiving With the Family

Thanksgivings are a great way to reconnect with family members near and far. You get to meet everyone's new significant others, navigate both deep and awkward conversations, and spend QT with your nearest and dearest. Use Thanksgiving as an excuse to try out a new recipe, such as a walnut pie with a chocolate twist, and help out with setting up decor or cleaning afterward. Put on some stretchy pants (your family won't judge you), and get ready for a night of bonding. If all else fails, stir up some friendly competition with a game the whole family can play.
