Many people have unique Thanksgiving traditions that their family does. Paige answered some questions about her favorite Thanksgiving traditions. She is looking forward to the break and of course the food. 

Q: Do you have any current plans for Thanksgiving break?

I do have plans! I am going to the ranch that my dad grew up on. My grandparents still live there now so I will be able to see them as well. It’s kind of in the middle of nowhere, but I still really enjoy going up there. 

Q: What is your favorite Thanksgiving dish?

I absolutely love green beans and of course turkey. But my favorite thanksgiving dish is probably the sweet potato and marshmallow casserole that my mom makes. 

Q: Are there any traditions that your family does specifically on thanksgiving?

One of our big traditions that my family has done, as long as I remember, is going to the ranch. It is a beautiful place to celebrate thanksgiving.  

Q: What is something that you are thankful for?

I am thankful for my family, and of course my pets. I have 2 dogs that are the cutest!

Q: What is one of your favorite thanksgiving memories?

One of my most favorite memories was learning to drive the car on the ranch. There is so much open land, and it was really easy to learn because there were no other cars around.
