Each year, my family does the same thing as most families do; meet at a certain family member’s house, eat, and celebrate one another’s company. I am very blessed that most of my immediate family lives a mere 20 minutes away so it is very convenient holiday season.
For a lot of people this is not the case. A lot of people travel or have some other type of tradition. Unfortunately though, traditions change over the years, whether all of the grand-kids get older and move further away, family members pass away and change the location or travel plans, an emergency occurs and family cannot come in from out of town, or simply no one chooses to travel so far this year. Whatever the case, there is nothing wrong with change and there are many fun alternatives to Thanksgiving or Christmas rather everyone spending it around a dinner table.
For us in Henry County for instance, we have Atlanta less than 40 miles north on I-75, a mere 30 minutes away with so many holiday activities for us to join in! Starting today, November 24, begins all the holiday and seasonal activities which would be perfect to join in for Thanksgiving if you and your family are having to switch up plans and want to do something different and fun!
There are Theatres, concerts, Christmas Lights, ice skating, parades, the aquarium, etc. You just have to search for what your family would enjoy!
