New Thanksgiving Traditions to Try with Your Family

If you’re looking for new Thanksgiving traditions to try out this year, then you’re in luck. There are tons of fun crafts and activities you can do with your family that will bring new life to the holiday, and we’ve come up with some of our favorites from around the internet.

Try out crafts with your kids like making a family tablecloth. Just get a plain white tablecloth and have everyone write down what they’re thankful for. You can use it every year and see how it changes. The kids will also have fun putting together a family cookbook with all your traditional Thanksgiving recipes. Print the recipes and have the kids decorate the pages, then put them in a binder or scrapbook.

Make it a tradition to take time out for yourself away from the bustle of Thanksgiving. Whether that’s taking a walk, making yourself breakfast to enjoy before your guests arrive, or sitting down with a cup of coffee in the morning before you start cooking, it’ll help you relax before things get too crazy.

Lastly, if you’d like to spend your holiday giving back to the community, try doing something charitable. Volunteer at a soup kitchen and help feed the less fortunate or get together some old clothes and toys your kids don’t need anymore and donate them to a local charity. Lots of communities have a Turkey Trot marathon that collects donations and lets you burn off all that heavy Thanksgiving food.

From everyone here at Trent Cadillac, we wish you an amazing Thanksgiving.

How to Prepare Your Cadillac for Fall

prepare your Cadillac for fall

Here in North Carolina, fall weather is relatively mild, especially out here on the coast. However, the closer you get to the mountains, the cooler it becomes. No matter where you live in the state, you need to take some time to prepare for the upcoming change in seasons. Here are three ways to prepare your Cadillac for fall.

  1. Check your tires. Wet leaves on the ground can lead to slick road conditions. Make sure your tires have enough tread left to keep you and your Cadillac connected to the ground. You can use the penny test, or, for even safer results, the quarter test.
  2. Pack an emergency kit. You never know when an emergency will happen, but you can try to plan for them. As the temperatures start to get cooler, especially at night, you’ll want to prepare for the worst—a dead car on the side of the road. Pack some blankets, a spare cell phone or charged battery, high energy snacks, emergency flares, and water.
  3. Catch up on maintenance. If your Cadillac is due for any routine maintenance, or you have been noticing some bothersome issues, then it is surely time for a check-up.
