WEIRD THINGS THAT HAVE HAPPENED AT MY EXTENDED FAMILY'S THANKSGIVING
Every year since I was born, my family has celebrated Thanksgiving at my mom's cousin's farm. There are anywhere between 35 and 50-ish people there every time. Here are just a few of the weirder things that have occurred.
- •Homeless Horse RiderA man that no one in the family knew previously sold all of his possessions to ride across the country on a horse. He somehow ended up staying in my relative's barn, so he was at their house (barn) on Thanksgiving.
- •Kissin' CousinsThere was a time when someone in the much older generation of the extended family attended Thanksgiving with her then husband...her first cousin.
- •Mandatory Scavenger HuntOne year all the kids were told they HAD to participate in a scavenger hunt, which really ended up being a way to make all the kids pick up all the trash and junk in their huge yard.
- •Human PyramidWe were taking the usual family photos, and someone had the grand idea to form a human pyramid with all the "younger" cousins. So, seventeen people piled on top of each other later, we had our pyramid.
