To some people, thanksgiving is a chance to stuff their faces with cranberry sauce and turkey. But there’s much more to it than food. Thanksgiving is a holiday centered on showing gratitude for what you have in life. After a mouth-watering three-course feast and lots of conversation, a collective moment of silence is sometimes followed by a thankfulness speech. The speaker can be anyone in the family, but the father often starts things off. He’ll talk about how thankful he is for his wife and children, For the great family and friends that surround him, and for the bounty that he has in life.

Liven up your Thanksgiving party by planning out a series of fun games.

We recommend hosting a few fun games if you’ve got a big crowd and are looking to keep them entertained. Assign game masters to each game and let your guests compete mentally or physically to win prizes.

Don’t forget the wishbone!
