The Thanksgiving school break is a great opportunity to go somewhere with the family. You may find yourselves across the country at grandma’s house or, if you’re lucky, at a beachy seaside destination. The nagging question, though, is how to take the usual Thanksgiving traditions with you when so many of the normal aspects of the holiday are out of your control.
Most kids really do like traditions. They may look forward to particular dishes, and no longer having cornbread stuffing, say, may feel off. Or you may be somewhere where finding a whole turkey to roast — and somewhere to cook it — isn’t even possible. How can it feel like Thanksgiving when you’re eating turkey tacos?
