Staff Favorites: 8 Great Thanksgiving Traditions

Eat Some Olives


Food is obviously the main attraction at the Thanksgiving dinner table, but this FE staff member knows how to make eating fun!

She says, "One silly Thanksgiving tradition that we had at our house was that we always served black and green olives. I don't think that is very unusual, but we ALWAYS picked out ten black olives each, stuck them on our fingers, and somehow found that to be the funniest thing ever. We would laugh while we ate them off our fingertips. This quirky tradition found its way back every year, and it's one of my fondest memories of Thanksgiving. I'm embarrassed to say that at least one of us still does it each year."
