Most students already have their ways of celebrating thanksgiving—some have family traditions that have been passed on through generations, while others are starting up new traditions to make Thanksgiving more personal each year. Below, Snow College students share how their family incorporates tradition into their Thanksgiving celebrations:


“My family always has a party called pie night. It’s always the night before Thanksgiving. A lot of my extended family comes to it and it’s just a whole ton of pies and junk food and it’s awesome!” – Wyatt Dilley

“Every thanksgiving morning we all get together and do a “turkey shoot” and shoot clay pigeons.” – Brooklyn Smout

“Every year each kid in my family is assigned to make their own pie. It’s so fun to try every one’s pies and see what flavor they decided on.” – Suzanne DeGraffenried

“Our Thanksgiving isn’t complete without skeet shooting after dinner.” – Rylan Krissman

“For Thanksgiving we always wake up and watch Macy’s Thanksgiving parade. Also, before we eat we go around the table and list something we’re thankful for. Yeah, it’s really cheesy, but it really unites our family and reminds us of what we should be grateful for” – Mitchell Frost
