Thanks by Candlelight

For our Thanksgiving tradition the table is set so that every person has a thin taper candle as part of their place setting. Before dinner begins, we dim the lights and light the first candle (usually my Mom's). She says what she is thankful for then lights the candle of the person sitting next to her. They follow by saying what they are thankful for and we continue around the table until all the candles are lit and everyone has expressed their thanks.

Sheila says:

This is the best idea I have ever read for expressing thanks on Thanksgiving. Thank you for the idea I am going to try it.
