"Thanksgiving Tales" Review...

"In Thanksgiving Tales: True Stories of the Holiday in America, 48 writers from across the United States share their individual stories and memories of Thanksgiving and provide insight into the variety of ways the holiday is experienced, celebrated, viewed and cherished by Americans. But, whether held in a country farmhouse, amid the frantic pace of New York City, or in a restaurant, there are a number of common elements. These stories reveal how seemingly simple things—like the passing of a tradition to the next generation, sitting next to Grandpa, favorite foods and recipes, or certain sounds, sights, and smells—can have special meaning and leave warm and indelible memories. Some of the humorous and funny Thanksgiving stories describe chaos and mishaps of meal preparation, family arguments and first-time hosts—all disasters then, but now looked upon with laughter. Other inspirational Thanksgiving stories recount family traditions, meaningful moments, memorable guests and hosts, remembering those no longer with us and being alone for the day. There are even some stories about out-and-out hating the holiday. Thanksgiving Tales is a reflection of Americans, as much as it is a look at the holiday."

What we thought:  I loved this book!  It was a fantastic collection  of Thanksgiving stories that will make you laugh and reflect and will really get you into the holiday spirit:)  It is really interesting to see the way different groups of people celebrate this wonderful holiday made especially for giving thanks.  This is a fabulous book to have on the coffee table this time of year and would make a wonderful hostess gift to the gracious person/people hosting your Thanksgiving celebration this year:)  ABCD Diaries gives "Thanksgiving Tales" an A+!
