A New Take on Thanksgiving

A New Take on Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is a time to come together and give thanks and gratitude for your bounty. Families across the country have their own traditions, many of which revolve around the day's fabulous menu. This might be a great time to start a new tradition around the true meaning of the day -- based on the Sun sign of your child -- or your beloved.

Aries
A variety of programs, such as Turkey Trots and Thanksgiving 5Ks, benefit charities and good causes. Lace up your running shoes and jog for a cause with your family this holiday.

Taurus
It might sound corny, but little Taurus children love gifts of any kind. Start a Thanksgiving tradition of giving your little one a small gift of appreciation to let them know how special they are to you on this fine day.

Gemini
Find a children's book this Thanksgiving that speaks to your heart, and read it aloud with the family each year after indulging in your feast.

Cancer
Cancers adore tradition almost as much as they adore food and sleeping. Thanksgiving is a wonderful opportunity to have a big puppy pile on your bed and snuggle post-feast with loved ones.

Leo
Most families don't have time for a game night -- and let's face it, most teenagers would run away if it were inflicted upon them weekly! But a yearly tournament on Thanksgiving will bring joy and laughter to any household with Leo energy. Enjoy one another's company and bond over an innocent game of Yahtzee.

Virgo
Create a nice tradition of packing up leftovers and bringing them to a shelter, or volunteer as a family at a soup kitchen the morning of Thanksgiving. Do for others, and reap the rewards together.

Libra
Can you say Black Friday? This is a tradition that no family with a Libra matriarch should miss out on. You know how to make a bargain look like a million dollars. Take advantage of this fun and crazy tradition.

Scorpio
Scorpios have so much depth and such a candid nature that when they share their innermost thoughts with their family, it's a real treasure. This Thanksgiving go around the table and share what you love about each person and what you are grateful for.

Sagittarius
Create a yearly tradition of incorporating something new into your Thanksgiving activities that involves an aspect of another culture. Read a Native American prayer aloud, or make a traditional Thanksgiving recipe with an ethnic twist.

Capricorn
Capricorn households can get a bit serious sometimes, so create a new Thanksgiving tradition that will make everyone laugh. Start a game of gratitude charades, for acting out what you love about your fellow family members is bound make you feel fun and silly.

Aquarius
Thanksgiving is not just about family, but friends as well. Take it upon yourself to host a big pot luck every year. Show your little ones the joy of sharing your bounty and love with your community.

Pisces
Pisces love movies. Find one that touches your heart, and break it out with the family -- each and every year. 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles' is a wonderful choice, while another terrific option is to welcome December with 'Miracle on 34th Street.'

Happy Thanksgiving!
