If You Could Invite Any One Person to Your Family’s Thanksgiving Dinner, Who Would It Be?
If you could invite any one person to your family’s Thanksgiving dinner, who would it be? Why would you invite them? And what would you eat? Those are questions that get us thinking. Would it be a celebrity, a family member from another state that you don’t see often, a deceased loved one, or someone completely out of the blue?
“I would invite Dr. Billy Graham because he’s done so much good for this world. We would eat the traditional Thanksgiving food such as turkey and corn and beans, but we would have rice instead of mashed potatoes in honor of Mrs. Graham,” said Susan Glenn.
“Why would you want that?” I asked.
“Because Mrs. Graham was a missionary to China and I’m sure Dr. Graham misses her very much.”
I also asked Addison Glenn who said,”I don’t know. I guess I would invite my cousin, Olivia.”
“Why your family?” I asked.
“Because I don’t usually get to have Thanksgiving dinner with her on Thanksgiving Day. I usually have to be satisfied with spending time together later in the weekend,” he replied proudly.
Miranda Cox said, “Hmm, I could invite any one person to dinner, I think I would invite Cassidy or Kendra,” referring to her close friends. “I really can’t think of anybody else as long as my family is there to spend time with me too. Turkey, we would eat turkey,” she said in a funny voice.
Pastor Jake Cordell answered “If I could invite any one person to my Thanksgiving dinner, it would probably be my entire family. Never in my lifetime have I had my parents and grandparents and siblings all together for a Thanksgiving. That is who I would invite and we would have everything from turkey to cranberry sauce, but black olives are a must because you must put them on your fingers then eat them off.”
“If I could invite anyone to that dinner, I think I would invite Papaw,” said Danielle Smith, referring to her grandpa who passed away years ago, “because I miss him because he’s Frank (I mean that both ways with his name and honesty) and how he always tells the truth. I want to hear his laugh and hug him. I know I’ll see him again, but it doesn’t mean I don’t miss him. What would I eat? Everything we usually have plus I would want him to fix his famous brisket and sauce,” she said.
For me personally, family and friends are what I am most thankful for. I would invite my close friends in Michigan and all my family form both Virginia and Texas. I would love a Thanksgiving family reunion. I love eating the traditional Thanksgiving meal; turkey with southern mashed potatoes and green beans and corn. It would be a great time of reminiscing all day long.
So what do you think? Now that you’ve heard the question about five times, who would you bring to your thanksgiving dinner? Now think carefully about your choice…
