Thanksgiving Costume Fun
Who says Halloween is the only time for costumes? Not me! Thanksgiving offers great chances to dress up for the holiday, and you don't have to pick from hundreds of possible costumes like you have to on Halloween, but looking for a turkey, Pilgrim or Indian costume is all you need to make it a great celebration which everyone will enjoy.
With a built-in theme for Thanksgiving, it all adds to a great experience when you add Thanksgiving decorations along with Thanksgiving costumes. It'll make you feel somewhat what the Pilgrims and Indians experienced at that first Thanksgiving so long ago.
Thanksgiving costumes are so enjoyable to wear because everyone pretty much dressed alike in those days, and having a corporate Thanksgiving experience involved in that way is always a family-building situation which will benefit everyone.
So whether you want to be the sacrificial turkey in a costume, or play the part of a Pilgrim or Indian, it's all great fun, and recreates a memorable time in American history, while offering up thanksgiving for the blessings God has given us.

We of course must start of Thanksgiving costumes by presenting some turkey costumes.
The first one is great, but I'm sure the second you looked at it you thought exactly what I thought, that you wouldn't last long hunched over in that position. But it does make for a great photo while you could last in it. Looking at it it's hard to tell if you can straighten up or not, but maybe you can, even if it may tighten up some. Standing up in the turkey costume would look fantastic as well.
Below that is what looks almost like a mascot for a sports team, but still a great Thanksgiving turkey costume that looks hilarious.
And for those that are extra bold, that final photo of the turkey hat is a real hoot. Now that's something I could get into.
