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!
All you need
All the staples you need to throw you need for a great Halloween Party for 16 guests! Party plates, plastic utensils, paper napkins, plastic cups, serving dishes, disposable tablecloth and some adorable extras so all you need to do is bring the food and the fun!
The possibility's for fun here are only limited by your imagine! Choose between; turkeys, native princes, native chief, pilgrim women, pilgrim man, even a pumpkin pie outfit!
And you can "mix- and- match" these in lmost endless combinations!
Try these suggestions
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!
Choose your character
What would be your Thanksgiving costume?
It's healthy too!
Let's not forget holiday theme role playing is a great to re leave some of that holiday stress too! By dressing in costume, you can escape in a world of fantasy even if it's just for a little bit. What an inexpensive form of holiday therapy!
