Thanksgiving Traditions

Not everyone has the ability to be with family during the holidays. If you’re living in a luxury apartment near Park Slope, maybe you just don’t have the time or the funds to travel home for Thanksgiving but that doesn’t mean you can’t mark the holiday. With everything to explore in Brooklyn, you can establish your own Thanksgiving tradition that doesn’t involve traveling home or being with family.

Thanksgiving Traditions That Don’t Involve Family


You live in the home of the most famous parade in the world – the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. So, take advantage of your geographic location and join in the fun! Yes, there’s the crowds and possibly cold weather and even snow, but what a wonderful tradition to look forward to every Thanksgiving morning! Pack some warm beverages, bundle up, and head to Manhattan to experience a holiday favorite every year!


Don’t waste the time and money it takes to make a big spread if it’s just going to be you or you and your partner. Make a tradition of finding a new an exciting place to have dinner each Thanksgiving. Take the opportunity to try that new restaurant you’ve been meaning to try – if they’re open of course. Or just pick one and stick to it every year. You’ll look forward to it just as you would a traditional Thanksgiving dinner when November rolls around.


One of the best ways to show gratitude during the holiday season close to your luxury apartment near Park Slope is to give back. Start a tradition of volunteering your time to others who are less fortunate on Thanksgiving. From delivering meals or groceries to working at a soup kitchen or spending time with the elderly, there are myriad opportunities for you to get involved in your community. Go a step further and put together small gifts for those you may encounter during your volunteering experience to make everything that much better.
