Every Thanksgiving we would go to my grandparent's house. It'a always been one of my most favorite holidays because there's just SO much incredible food! I especially liked the desserts, of course, but Grandma's stuffings were pretty special, too. Grandma didn't only make one for the family, she made two - one bread stuffing and one meat stuffing which was specially made for Grandpa. It was tasty enough, but was just something I never took to. For me, the stuff inside the turkey needs to be of the bread type. That's just me, but it was something he requested every year and it became a tradition.
It's great to have family traditions because it's wonderful to be able to either continue them or look back on them and they bring us together.
