Thanksgiving is a time for family activities and treasured traditions that make the holiday special. Other places may have traditions unique to their area, and so do we here in Florida. For example, there is the traditional Thanksgiving shark jumping with two of my grand daughters high on the list of competitors.
And then there is the traditional Thanksgiving handstand, demonstrated by another grand daughter and her coach.
And the traditional bow and arrow handstand in honor of the the indians that the pilgrims had for dinner on the first Thanksgiving.
And who can forget the traditional Thanksgiving pyramid?
But most of all Thanksgiving is a time for reflection and realizing what's really important: 1 - family, no matter how crazy they may be, and 2 - the nice quiet serenity when they all go home and none have been to the emergency room. ;-)
