On Thanksgiving, millions of Americans from all backgrounds and religions will come together, possibly watch a lot of football and definitely eat a lot of food. But before the festivities begin, tell us, what’s your pre-meal ritual of choice – giving thanks or saying grace?
Families who invite people of many faiths and beliefs into their homes may choose to give thanks. Going around the table, everyone will get to hear charming words of gratitude, stories that make us smile and fond memories. Sounds so lovely, right? It totally is while the first few in-laws, aunts and uncles, grandparents and even strangers say their piece. But as these words of thanks continue, stomachs may start to rumble, elbow fights may ensue at the kids table and the dog may cause some mischief because he’s not going to wait any longer for turkey scraps.
For other families, saying grace is the way to go. Grace can be led by the host or the kids, seated or standing, with hands held and heads bowed or hands clasped in prayer. Some guests remember the words, or perhaps grace is “freestyled” in your home. Grace is a time to pause before the feast and share a prayer for the year’s blessings – plus there’s the added benefit of being able to eat right away! Unless the host is exceptionally long-winded. You might just have to settle for cold turkey.
