This Tablecloth Is A Holiday Tradition Every Family Should Adopt

November 23, 2016

Deb Mills and her family started this tablecloth 16 years ago. On it is the names of everyone she's shared Thanksgiving with.

"We started this tablecloth in 2000," she wrote on Facebook. "It has the names of everyone we've shared Thanksgiving with each year. Each year is a different color. I am so grateful to have the signatures of those who have left us. . . mom, David's dad, our daughter Mary. It has scribbles of grands and special messages. Everyone signs it at our Thanksgiving and then I embroider it each year and it is quite a treasure to me. Along the edge is a key of what color goes with what year. Thanksgiving is this weekend at our house so we are ready for a new set of signatures."

The family below started their Thanksgiving/Christmas tablecloth in the 1980s.

"My Grandparents started theirs in the 80's I believe. Everyone who is over at Thanksgiving or Christmas signs it (once per year). My grandma will go in and embroider everyone's names. The grandkids have handprints from their first holidays, close family friends, stories of ex's, and so many cherished memories are tied into this. It's one of my favorite Holiday traditions. My cousin sews it now that my grandma is older and since I've been married I've started my own. I hope to keep mine going as long as she has."

Some families also write something they are thankful for each year. We encourage you to start a similar tradition this year!
