For my family, it's everyone sharing what they are thankful for. That's relatively new...the last 10 years or so. Before that it was football and national geographic specials on tv. My cleaning lady told me they had a "Blessing" box that was set up in the living room, and everytime someone (usually the person cleaning the living room that week) had a blessing they would write it on a little card and put it in the box...and they'd read it after Thanksgiving dinner. I think that's a good idea, and I think I shall incorporate it for my little family. Meanwhile, it's still about every single person - family, guests, homeless ppl, whomever, sharing one thing at least that they are thankful for. I'm always thankful for God and for family.
