From Plymouth MA
I was born and raised in Plymouth MA - the site of the "First Thanksgiving". Yes, I know people will say that there were other thanksgiving celebrations that preceded ours. Lets just say that Plymouth had the better press agent.
Traditions? Strangely enough mine have changed over the years. Perhaps they can't be called traditions since they are different now.
When I was young the tradition was to watch the local high school football game on Thursday morning against our arch rivals. Then home to a huge turkey dinner. Afternoon taking a nap and watching some TV.
Today? Corresponding with my good internet friends here and on FB. Watching the parades on TV. Heading over to a friends house for late Thanksgiving Dinner while watching one of the NFL games. Then home and hopefully able to stay awake long enough to catch the Patriots game tonight.
For those that are curious - Plymouth does have a few traditions. There was a parade last weekend. There is something called "Pilgrims Progress" which is a procession of re-enactors that walk the route from the waterfront where the original Pilgrims landed up to the church where they gave thanksgiving. There is a big Thanksgiving Dinner at Plimoth Plantation (a recreation of the early Pilgrim village). There will likely also be a protest staged by a group of native americans.
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
