A few years ago, I started a fun Thanksgiving tradition! I asked those who would be celebrating with us to email me their favorite Thanksgiving quote a few days prior to the festivities, giving me to time to get my creative juices in gear!
Once received, using a celebratory font, I printed them out and placed one quote with each place setting. When we sat down to dine, we read the quotes aloud and guessed who they belonged to!!! What fun! Lots of laughs, which added to our feelings of gratitude.
Here are this year’s 12 Thanksgiving quotes!
