Celebrities Who Have Fun Thanksgiving Traditions

Thanksgiving is not like any other holiday. In America, it brings out the best in us. For the average family, it is the perfect time of the year to come together and create wonderful memories. Several individuals go out of their way to make Thanksgiving a lot more memorable. So many of our celebrities have such habits.

Are you interested in what celebrities do during Thanksgiving? We may not know exactly what your favorite celebrities do, but we know a few celebrities who have fun thanksgiving traditions. Here are those on our list and what they do.

Katie Holmes

If you know Katie Holmes too well, you shouldn’t be surprised that her thanksgiving tradition involves being active. The ‘All We Had’ star opened up to Jimmy Fallon about her family’s yearly ritual, which she still adheres to. According to the actress, her dad started the tradition, called ‘Turkey Trot,’ which is a run in the local park. She said there was a prize for the run, which she had never won as of 2012 when she granted the interview. We are not sure she has earned the coveted prize eight years later.

Blake Lively

No one lives it up like Blake Lively and her loving family. The ‘Gossip Girl’ star revealed that she cooks an entire feast for her family. In her words, “On Thanksgiving, I’ll cook an entire feast, a 12-course mean. And it’s hard to pick a favorite, but my sweet potato casserole is pretty good.” It is hard to tell the changes she has made to this wonderful tradition now that she has a family of five with Ryan Reynolds. We believe she must be making extra casseroles. 

Jessica Alba

Jessica has obviously been having great Thanksgiving from the time she was little. When she opened up to Instyle some years ago, she talked big about her big family thanksgiving tradition. In her words, “I love holiday traditions. We have a big family-and-friends sit-down dinner. Cash, me, and my parents throw down in the kitchen, and my dad makes the most yummy tender turkeys.” Who wouldn’t want a taste of her dad’s spicy turkeys with all the fixings?

There you have it! Above are some famous celebrities who have fun Thanksgiving traditions. However, you don’t have to be a celebrity to create fun Thanksgiving traditions. If you don’t have any, you can start your own with loved ones during the next Thanksgiving.
