Red Hat Thanksgiving Traditions

Thanksgiving is almost here and with the arrival of turkey day the holiday traditions will soon unravel.

It goes without saying that Thanksgiving is a fall time favorite due to a bountiful spread of tasty delights and the sports enthusiasts intrigue for football filling the television screen. Around the Queens house, our royal traditions transcend the dinner table.

Before the Thanksgiving feast, our entire family piles into the backyard for a game of touch football. Sporting my red hat sweatshirt on the field, I play intensely with high hopes of winning. This seemingly innocent game of family football deem the losers with the dirty dishes chore.

My daughters and I are match in our red chef hats and red hat aprons to prepare the days eateries. This always creates the most memorable moments and charming photos!

Over dinner, each family member declares one thing they are thankful for and raise a Queen Wine Glass to toast and honor that blessing. From spreading butter onto the homemade bread with my red hat spreaders, to pouring gravy over the turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing--everyone enjoys the traditional thanksgiving turkey dinner.

Savor the food and traditional moments of Thanksgiving this year my fellow red hat women!

Until Next Time,

Thanksgiving Parades!

Red Hat Ladies!

Nothing kicks off the holiday season like America's Thanksgiving Parade. This holiday procession has award-winning floats, helium filled balloons and papier-mâché heads marching down packed streets, and I would not miss it.

My red hat sisters and I peruse the parade together, keeping warm in our red hat jackets and red hat sweatshirts. To spruce up my outfit and celebrate the beginning of the holiday season, I pair my red hat outfit with a red sequin floral fedora and red hat shawl for added warmth and style.

Huddled together with my red hat sisters on the street, we always bring along tasty treats and fill our red hat coffee mugs to the brim with hot chocolate.

I know the holidays are defiantly underway when I see Santa close the parade when he rides through on his sleigh. My red hat sisters and I grow fond of this cherished holiday moment we are thankful to share together.

Have fun cheering on the parades my Red Hat sisters!

Until Next Time,

The Holiday Is Upon Us!

Red Hat Sisters,

I am so excited for the Holidays this year! My children are coming into town, my house will be decorated to the nines with decorum like my red hat bear wreath, and the smell of Christmas cookies are soon to fill the air.

We all know the happiness of the holidays is derived from those subtle, yet special moments like watching a child's face gleam at the joy of what Christmas morning brought, or gathering around in a pair of comfy red hat pajamas to watch classic movies like "A Christmas Story" and "It's a Wonderful Life."

For this red hatter, the holidays are about tradition. Every year, my husband and I trek through a Christmas tree lot to discover the perfect pine. I cover the tree with silver tinsel and strategically place ornaments like my eyeglass and red hat ornaments.

My most treasured tradition is shared with my grandchildren. A few years back I presented them with an elf on a shelf set. We have cherished the story book together each year while cuddling with the darling elf doll.

For me, these are the moments that make up the holidays. Put on your holiday sparkle hat ladies and head out into the snow to experience the joy and merriment this holiday season is sure to endure.
