Making Thanksgiving Memorable Moments
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. The 4 "F's" of Thanksgiving include food, fun, family (and sometimes fights!). But all of this combines to make memories and special moments.
I love to create special moments during the holidays because our lives are remembered through moments. Research has found that when recalling an experience our brains focus on a few particular moments. That is why I try to infuse defining moments into our holidays. It does take work and convincing family members to go along with some of the ideas, but at the end of the day, these powerful moments will be remembered.
One of these moments is taking a few minutes before we all dig into the Thanksgiving feast to be grateful and celebrate. Seth Godin and his team created a wonderful Thanksgiving reader that provides a way to make your Thanksgiving special. I don't follow it exactly, but the stories and thoughts we read before eating differentiate our thanksgiving dinner from other dinners we eat throughout the year. I have attached the reader for you.
For those in the United States I wish you a very happy Thanksgiving and to the rest of the world, why not start a new tradition?!
