Immerse yourself in nostalgia. Every Thanksgiving, my mother-in-law pulls out a felt turkey head and tail made by my brother-in-law when he was a kid. It attaches to a pineapple and, you get it, a full turkey. We cannot have a meal without it. Most families have some or more treasured holiday mementos, whether it’s a youthful painting or a painted ceramic painting. Maybe this is the year to pull them out, if you haven’t been for a long time. Another option is to put all your family photo albums so everyone can see them, especially if you’re meeting people for the first time. Or project an online album to your TV. Portraits of loved ones you have lost can also be very meaningful.
