Upholding Traditions: Thanksgiving
How Team Ayva Celebrates the Holiday
As families around the country gear up for Thanksgiving, we’re reminded of the importance of honoring traditions. Some families practice traditions upheld through centuries, while others begin new ones with their young children. Some traditions are happy accidents, like that time friends of ours ruined the turkey and had to order takeout: They liked it so much, it’s been done every year since (true story!). Other traditions are engrained in the food—grandma’s recipe for homemade gravy, a staple no matter what’s on the table, from fried turkey to vegan tofurkey to turducken.
Here at Team Ayva, we observe Thanksgiving in our own special way: We do order a ready-made spread of all the good stuff (because really, who could pass up turkey and pie?), but it’s what comes after the meal that we treasure most. And that’s Bond—James Bond. Each year, we enjoy a marathon of our favorite British Secret Service agent, snacking on leftovers and popcorn, huddled around the television and snuggled up together. It’s our own little way to acknowledge this special time together, year after year. A little pie, a little Diamonds Are Forever. The World is Not Enough, but these leftovers sure are.
So, we ask you: What are your Thanksgiving traditions? From cooking the perfect holiday spread to watching the Macy’s Parade, enjoying a rough-and-tumble game of football to catching the Black Friday sales early, your traditions are important. Just as we create jewelry that we hope will be passed down from one generation to the next, we hope the same can be done for your family’s holiday traditions, no matter what they might be.
We’ll be taking a few days off to observe the holiday weekend with the family, and hope that you are able to do the same. We’ll see you back here next week! Have a safe, happy, and memorable Thanksgiving holiday!
