In The Loop with Andy Andrews, hosted by The Robert D.
On this week’s episode, I talk about this year’s Thanksgiving, what it was like in my childhood, and whom I would spend it with if I could reach back through history.
Thanksgiving is awesome.
- My family always gets together for a HUGE production.
- Everyone cooking gets chef hats and shirts.
- This is the first year that our friends, the Bakkens, are having an official Thanksgiving as Americans (they’re from Canada).
What was Thanksgiving like when I was young?
- Most times we would go to Jackson, AL, to have dinner with our grandparents.
- I would hunt squirrels with my pellet gun.
How does perspective relate to the spirit of gratefulness?
- Perspective brings about gratefulness.
- Every year we see things telling us to not just be thankful on one day, but to be thankful all year.
- Anytime we forget that we have a roof over our heads, food on the table, and water to drink, we need to remember that billions of people are without any of these things.
Who is one person from history that I would have Thanksgiving dinner with?
- It would be Abraham Lincoln.
- A lot of people don’t know the story of Lincoln and his part in Thanksgiving.
- In October of 1863, Lincoln established this holiday with a proclamation.
Our family has a military tradition that we honor during special holiday meals.
- We set an empty place at the table to remember those who are serving overseas and will not be home for dinner.
Just a reminder, this is the biggest shopping weekend of the year. We have specials on AndyAndrews.com and you will be showing a lot of gratitude when you see what we’ve done.
