24 Days of Thanksgiving - Thanksgiving Trivia!

At just about every holiday celebration I've been to, the meal is always running late. This is completely understandable, because whoever is cooking the meal has a huge job on their hands. While I, and all the other adults understand the tardiness of the meal, the kids are less than understanding. They just sit there, with their attitudes all in a bunch, texting their boy/girlfriends about how lame the holidays are. The ungrateful little punks sweet things.

To continue my 24 Days of Thanksgiving series, I've created something for you to pass a few minutes and maybe get some conversation happening: Thanksgiving Trivia cards!  I made these using Microsoft Word, using a template for business cards.  You are welcome to print it out (make sure you use one piece of paper or cardstock and flip it over so it will print the front and back!) and quiz the family while the Thanksgiving cook is finishing up the mashed potatoes.

If you want to make your own trivia cards, that's great!  There are ample resources online for fun facts about the holiday.  If your family is one of those fun, silly, joking families, you should include personal trivia... for example: Which uncle fell asleep first during the bowl games last year?  Those kinds of questions are fun, and even the ungrateful sweet teenagers will get involved!

Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. This is going to tell you just how nerdy my family is, but every year growing up we would do a spreadsheet. We would calculate how much time each individual dish takes and put it on the spreadsheet according to the time that it takes. So say the turkey takes 5 hours and you want dinner on the table by 2, it'd have to be dressed and in the oven by 9. Make sure you start about 20-30 minutes early so it can be in the oven on time. Everyone was assigned different things, from the stuffing, to the cranberry sauce, and even setting the table. Everything was done according to the spreadsheet, the whole family helped and we always ate right on time. :) It's a tradition that I've carried on to my family. But so far all the kids can really do is stir the stuffing or put silverware on the table.

  2. Good job on the trivia cards. These would have been great when I was teaching, too.

  3. I'm SO happy to be following you!!! I LOVE how you spotlight the holidays and will be checking back each day so I don't miss a thing!!!

  4. @Tyler, Alexis, Karielle and Jillian, oh man, I would fit in so well with your family. I have spreadsheets for everything. If there was a way to have a spreadsheet to keep track of my spreadsheets, I would have made it by now.

  5. LOL! Well see? It's nice to know that there are more nerds out there than just me and the crazy Hale's. :) I love me a good spreadsheet, especially for budgeting and watching my money work. Woot. :)


I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
