Holiday traditions are one thing, but family Thanksgiving traditions are often more important than the usual holiday practices. If you're on the hunt for a new tradition that the whole family can take part in for years to come, then try out one of these fantastic Thanksgiving traditions!

Have a Massive Breakfast

Many people celebrating Thanksgiving skip breakfast in order to leave more room for the feast that comes later in the day. Having a massive breakfast is a tradition for some, and it's one you could start yourself! A warmup feast of pancakes, waffles, eggs, and pie can really get you in the mood for Thanksgiving Day!

Substitute the Turkey

Not everyone is a fan of Turkey, which makes a Thanksgiving Feast something they won't be looking forward to. Try to mix things up by substituting the Turkey with another filling entre, such as ham, chicken, or fish.

Let the Kids Help

Kids are full of energy, and they always want to help, but sometimes they make a mess of things. This Thanksgiving, try letting the kids help by allowing them to serve dessert, like pre-sliced pie or cake, and coffee after turkey. At the very least, letting them run plates to the table can allow them to take part in the day's festivities.
