The leaves have fallen, the Halloween sugar binge is nearly complete and Starbucks is serving the eggnog latte in holiday-themed cups. This can only mean one thing: Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Like most Americans, I cherish any holiday that combines thanking people with eating large amounts of carbs and sitting on the couch. Finally, a holiday all about relaxing! Except for the person on whose couch you have camped out, aka, the Thanksgiving Day host.
The Thanksgiving Day host is tasked with the following:
- Meal planning and scheduling;
- Extending invitations; and,
Not too mention the role of designated referee for the inter-family squabbles that often break out during the holidays over hard-hitting topics like whether or not to strain the gravy one last time, add sausage to the stuffing or who sits next to whom at dinner. That's a lot of organizing. Luckily, we're here to help. Organizing For Thanksgiving Day provides hosts with a list of tips to make Thanksgiving Day go as smoothly, and festively, as possible.
