Thanksgiving table decorations and centerpieces are quite useful, especially since the holiday centers on a meal. Thanksgiving is normally celebrated by families, and elaborate decorative displays are not commonplace. But subdued indoor decorations for the family to enjoy are wonderful additions to the holiday celebration.
In some cases, the holiday may need to be extended. Grown children cannot be in two places at the same time, and if a grown child is married there can arise the difficulty of being with each’s family at the same time. This might be resolved by a prolonged celebration of two meals, one at lunchtime and one at dinner time, with people coming as schedules permit, but if there is a great distance to travel a second day might need to be scheduled.
