Many will be traveling home and enjoying family for the Thanksgiving Season.  But now, we will barely have time to give thanks and finish dessert before rushing to shop for the best Christmas deals.


With the busy schedules, most people keep, perhaps there is something to be said for setting aside this day to give thanks and relax.


Here are a few ways to give thanks and celebrate Thanksgiving:


  • Find an organization where you can feed or help the homeless, then head home to start cooking and watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
  • During your Thanksgiving dinner, ask each person to share a line of gratitude for each person seated at the table.
  • Watch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving together as a family.
  • Use this time to sit down as a family and establish a new holiday tradition.
  • Write thank you notes to people who have made a difference in your life.
  • Set out a jigsaw puzzle for everybody to work on throughout the weekend.
  • Post an “I Am Thankful For…” list on the refrigerator and ask everybody to contribute to it. Write each item from the list on colorful strips of paper. Let someone read the list at Thanksgiving dinner.


Some may think these are the “old-fashioned” ways of celebrating Thanksgiving, but it’s truly a special day for families and friends.

Happy Thanksgiving from the Staff of New Hope Medical Training!  We are truly thankful for all the students who entrusted us to help start their career in the Health Care Field.
