Heading out to Cleveland for Thanksgiving Dinner
I appreciate the guest post, Alonso Humphrey
What can I say? Visiting our family on Thanksgiving is a hectic, fun-filled day. My family is loud and boisterous, but what better way to spend the holiday joking, laughing and having fun? My family and I head out to my brother's house for our traditional Thanksgiving event, all the way near Cleveland, Ohio. We have to leave early in the morning, since the drive is a good 45 minutes away, and we never forget to set our home security alarm system (ADT ALARM specials) before we leave the house, as we never get back until way after dark.
Usually the whole mess of family is there; uncles, aunts, cousins, my niece and two nephews, and of course the random old and new boyfriends and girlfriends of the moment. But it's fun mixing together with everyone. We laugh and joke around, and we always plan to watch TV while we are there, since there are so many great Thanksgiving day specials, parades and football games on that day. We especially love the kids Thanksgiving specials, such as a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, which the kids flip for.
Our meal is a fun-filled event with lots of laughing, shouting and joking. I love visiting my family on Thanksgiving, as it is a time to catch up with relatives I haven't seen all year, as well as embrace the ones I see regularly.
