Next week is Thanksgiving, and that chances are very high that at some point on Thursday you’ll need to loosen your belt a notch or two. Right? No, don’t look around the room we’re talking to you. That’s not an indictment of your eating habits, it’s just a simple fact that millions of Americans carry a food baby to full term on Thanksgiving Day. After all, there’s all that turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cobbler, pumpkin pie (or tacos and hamburgers if you’re not into classic Thanksgiving food) that must be eaten. MUST be eaten. You are commanded by generations of overeaters to stuff your face out of gratefulness for the ability to stuff your face on a daily basis. 


Most than anything, though, we celebrate how thankful we are for the loved ones in our lives. Did you know the first Thanksgiving was held in 1863? No, not the Thanksgiving from Plymouth you were taught about in school. This was the first official Thanksgiving. It was after the Union victory at Gettysburg, and President Lincoln declared a day of thanks. At that time, the people of a war-torn nation were especially grateful for the loved ones that were by their side, as so many were mourning the loss of the thousands upon thousands lost in the war. 


This Thanksgiving when you come out of your food coma and are looking for an activity for the whole family that doesn't require much moving, why not gather round the ole laptop and design some custom t-shirts together. With WhoopTee, you can create just one t-shirt of your little one’s masterpiece, or you can order several custom tees for your entire family. You can pitch in together and come up with a design by committee, one that truly has the entire family’s approval.


Thanksgiving is all about family, and family activities are a great way to spend time together that isn’t sitting around staring at each other. Unless you’re into that, in which case…go nuts, we guess. Chances are after you finish off that last pie you won’t be doing jumping jacks, though, so why not kill some time on our user-friendly design tool. If you need some ideas, check out our guides, or check out our templates, and remember, enjoy your family, and enjoy your holiday.
