    Thanksgiving traditions

    Up here in New England, we have an awesome tradition which only takes place in certain parts of the country.
    On Thanksgiving morn., all the high school football rivals face off at ten AM.
    Many, many of these games have serious post season implications.
    My home town of Beverly Mass. (the Panthers) has been playing hated rivals Salem Mass. since 1891.
    The towns are approx. 20 miles north of Boston.
    You may have heard of Salem for the witch trials of the 1600s.
    Their high school mascot is actually a Witch!
    A regular season game may draw 2,000-2,500, but on Turkey day you are likely to see 6,000-11,000 people.
    Many folks have breakfast partys, and even gramps will probably have a full flask at the game.
    What a great tradition!
    Let's hear some of yours.

    That witch thing didn't really catch on around here. The rest of it sounds pretty cool though.
    Around here we tend to go Pheasant hunting or watch football on tv in addition to the obligatory family gathering for over eating.
    I worked every Thanksgiving for a stretch of about 10 years straight. I now get them all off and enjoy it immensely.
    Now that I'm older I'm busy with smoking or frying a turkey while the little woman roasts one. Sometimes I make pies.
    I don't have time for much else but entertaining family and guests that day. But it is so worth it when everyone comes home for a visit.

    Much to give thanks for.

    Last year we started a new tradition. Before and after dinner everyone steps on the scale and whoever gains the most weight is declared the winner.

    The thing about the ten AM game time is that we arrive home around 1 PM for dinner and an afternoon of NFL football.
    Being a newly published author of a book titled "New England Bandwagon Nation" gives us much to be thankful for, as well.
    I am glad you get Thurs. off to spend with family.
    Happy Thanksgiving and Go Vikes!!!!!!!!!!

    I kind of had that 10 am thing figured out and think it is a very cool tradition.
    Congrats on the book.
