Thanksgiving Traditions

We recognize that every transfer students' experience is different, however, we know that many transfers face some of the same challenges as they transition into the university. This blog was created for transfers by transfers to share TIPS and insight on having the best semester you can at Texas A&M University.

    Ah, traditions. If there’s one thing all Aggies are familiar with, it’s tradition. The holidays are also a time of tradition, too. So whether you’re going home for the holidays or even just having a normal day in Aggieland, you are bound to come across (and perhaps even participate in) some sort of tradition!

    For my family, one of our Thanksgiving traditions is to watch a Christmas movie the day after Thanksgiving. Generally, it’s Elf. But sometimes we go for Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas. We generally make hot cocoa, call all of our dogs onto the couches with us, and press play.

    Another one of our other traditions is that I always make pumpkin pie—yum, yum, yum! I loooove dessert and pumpkin pie is no exception!

    Do you have any particular Thanksgiving traditions?
