Thanksgiving will soon be upon us! The comforting aroma of basted turkey and delicious stuffing can turn any house into a home and bring a family together. After a few a plates, belt buckles will loosen up and stomachs will start to swell. Another prayer or moment of thanks might cause that greedy uncle to doze off. Sounds like another successful holiday feast, but there’s always room for improvement. Post meal entertainment is vital. Movies are an easy choice but why not bring a character to life before everyone eats?
Click here and reenact the origins of Thanksgiving. A pilgrim costume will be the highlight of the night. Take the whole family back to colonial times and give everyone a history lesson on the legendary Spanish expeditions to America. Children and adults, alike, can partake in a homegrown Thanksgiving production, and every detail will be true to history. From the wide collars to the distinctive belt buckles, every stitch will take you back in time!
Pilgrim costumes are not limited to men. Women have many options. Check out this awesome costume. The Pioneer Dress is old fashioned to the core and allows you to take a step back in time. Here’s a cool mission: go Thanksgiving food shopping in full pilgrim gear. Instead of going to the supermarket, go find a live turkey and pick your own vegetables from a farm. This task may seem daunting but it will be a great experience. Sometimes it’s hard to understand the past by second hand knowledge. Try it for yourself and you’ll have something else to be thankful for on Thanksgiving!
Bring out the colonial costumes and start a new tradition on Turkey day!
