Costumes For Thanksgiving?

Thanksgiving is just a week away and many of us are gearing up for the big day.  My "to do" list contains things like:

  • pick up the turkey and trimmings
  • pick up my sister and her family at the airport
  • pick up decorations
  • pick up costumes

Now, that last "pick up" sounds a little more like a to do list for Halloween, but not at our house.  Every year the younger kids like to wear Thanksgiving costumes for our annual Thanksgiving dinner.  We've had the tradition in our family for years.  Even the older kids (from teens to adults) enjoy getting into the act sometimes!

American Indian Girl Costume

It's not uncommon to see my children and their cousins dressed as Pilgrims and Indians running around the house while we're fixing Thanksgiving dinner.  I'm sure the kids like it maybe not so much for the meaning behind the costumes, but just for the fact that they can run around the house like the wild kids they are.   It's so much fun for them and they look forward to it every year!

This year let your kids have fun while maybe even learning a little about the history of the Thanksgiving holiday. has a huge selection of Thanksgiving Day costumes and accessories to make it easy and convenient for your family to start your own holiday tradition this year!
