How do I love thee?

Start a Tradition

In between tucking into the turkey and tossing the pigskin, create a new tradition.
Give your house Guests and family strips of colorful paper, have each person write a few words or lines of thanks and sign his or her name, and drop the strips into a clear bowl.  Use the bowl as a centerpiece; then , after the feast, pass it around and ask each person to read one note out loud.  You may discover that your teenage son is grateful for you after all.

    Lori, this is a tradition I started about 15 years ago…we give each person 5 post-it size papers and have them write different things they are thankful for…no names. During dessert, we pass the bowl and one at a time every one reads a chosen paper and we guess who wrote the note…we keep passing until all are read…
