The husband has already made travel plans for Thanksgiving. Wow! He's never done that before, but he has had some experiences that have led up to this. The boy was asked at school about his family's traditions on Thanksgiving. His answer. . . traveling. Yep, that's our family tradition.
For several years, we traveled to Houston, Texas, for Thanksgiving. We have family there and would fly on Wednesday and return on Sunday--the busiest travel day of the year! Our plans changed when my step-mother's school vacation time changed. Now we go to Houston at other times of the year.
Thanksgiving, 2006, was our first trip to the Walt Disney World Resort. The photo above was taken on Thanksgiving Day! We were at EPCOT that day and ate at the Garden Grill. I remember we had turkey, stuffing, and even cranberry sauce. Dining with characters on Thanksgiving Day! I also remember listening to other guests at our resort talking about their plans for the Thanksgiving meal. Disney makes sure you are well taken care of. And, Thanksgiving is a high attendance day at the World. I can also recall sitting next to a lady from Canada on the bus to Downtown Disney. She was telling me how surprised she was at the crowds. I told her it was Thanksgiving. She had a light bulb moment, as it wasn't Thanksgiving in Canada. Thanksgiving is an American holiday.

Yes, traveling is our family Thanksgiving tradition. Creating memories and having shared experiences make the holiday for us. And, we have discovered that we are not alone. Many other families do the same, annually. And, since the husband is taking care of the plans this year, all he needs to do now is figure out what to do with the cat and dog.
