We have reached the month when the holidays begin to be felt and people seem to be happier.
As Halloween has just passed, we are all getting ready for the next holiday knocking at the door, this being the Thanksgiving day.
For those who don’t know and don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, this is an annual national holiday in the United States and Canada celebrating the harvest and other blessings of the past year. With respect to vehicular travel, the holiday is often the busiest of the year, as family members gather with one another. Thanksgiving Day is celebrated on Thursday, November 25, 2021.
So, you might be wondering how you should prepare for Thanksgiving day; well, here are some ideas.
A deep cleaning thru the whole house
It is known that on the day of the celebration of Thanksgiving, all relatives gather under one roof to form a hearty meal.
As the whole family gathers in one day of the year, the house will be full of guests, so you can’t afford to have a messy house, especially if there will be children who will be in all corners possible of the house.
So, a few days in advance, you should take intensive care of the preparation of the house, to do a thorough cleaning so as not to be careful during dinner so that no one notices a small imperfection.
Decorate your Thanksgiving house
Even though Halloween is over, many have a habit of decorating the house when it comes to Thanksgiving. Of course, you will not decorate it like Halloween with scary things, but you will try to bring the autumn atmosphere to your own home, thus giving it a comfortable autumn image and wrapped in a lot of love.
You can start by putting some fresh pumpkins, to decorate the house and get to soak the house with their delicious smell. You can paint them in shades of white to create a beautiful contrast.
You can also make a natural garland of leaves of different colours from the fallen leaves of the trees and hang it above the table or in a place where it will be in the foreground.
Also, you could put the tablecloth in shades of orange or brick to envelop the house in an autumnal tone.
Last but not least, you could finish the house with some scented candles. You can choose these according to the flavours suggested by the current season. Or you can add some orange peels through some corners of the house to give you a natural and healthy smell of natural orange.
Prepare the Thanksgiving goodies
The American holiday is particularly rich in legend and symbolism, and the traditional fare of the Thanksgiving meal typically includes turkey, bread stuffing, potatoes, cranberries, and pumpkin pie.
But you can get creative with these. Of course, we do not deviate from the original theme. You can prepare traditional dishes and besides, you can bring some bonuses that will delight the company.
You can get creative and make some cakes in the shape of leaves or pumpkins, in different flavours: chocolate, vanilla, pumpkin.
Also, to be in tune with the autumn shades, you can add orange juices, such as Fanta or even make a natural juice from oranges, which will be 5 times more appreciated.
Don’t forget to leave the orange pulp in it for extra points;)
Greet the Thanksgiving family
And the last step, are the guests. If you have family members you haven’t seen in a long time, you can surprise them with some themed gifts.
It doesn’t have to be expensive, you can make your own gifts such as a photo frame or a holiday trinket.
A little attention is always appreciated and no one would think of such a gesture.
And in the end, it remains for you to enjoy this wonderful holiday together and to instil the spirit of the holiday from now on.
And you are done! Thanksgiving day can finally start!
