Having fun with Thanksgiving costumes

Why not Thanksgiving?

What ever happened to the good 'ole days when every holiday had it's costume parties? I think it's a tradition that should be revived! After all, isn't the one of the purposes of a holiday to escape from the drudgery of life? If, like me, you dress up for Halloween don't tell me you wouldn't love doing it year around!

Every body wants to be someone else once- in- awhile, so why not continue the fun by having fun with Thanksgiving costumes?


A family affair

Of course I realize Thanksgiving is a family affair, and I'm all for getting the whole family involved! Just as you "costume- up" for Halloween, everyone could do the same for Thanksgiving!

There are so many ways to have fun with this! One of my favorites is to have the family be pilgrims and all the guests can be natives and bring a dish! Talk about task distribution! Every helps with the cooking. Another idea is to "elect" someone to be the 'turkey' each year!

Include the family pet in the fun

Yes there are costumes for pets too! It's not just for Halloween anymore. "Fido" can be a pligrim, a native, or even a turkey!
