Thanksgiving Activities in Cobb

Jennifer Bonn

I don’t think I am the only person who always feels like the holidays sneak up on me before I can prepare properly. This year, I am ready and I want to help you plan an amazing holiday too with some of the many ways to celebrate Thanksgiving in Cobb County. Here are some ideas.

Go to the Dollar Tree and buy beautiful decorations without breaking your budget. Here is the store website to browse for some ideas. Look under fall and harvest. Find invitations to send to your family and friends and write why you are thankful for that person.

Decide if you are cooking at home or going out to eat. If you are eating at home, you could ask everyone to bring something, so you will not be as stressed, and it gives everyone an opportunity to show off their cooking abilities. There are amazing recipes on If you are eating at home, you can buy most of the fixings at places like Honey Baked Hams. You could also order to go from the Marietta Diner.

Since we are going to be eating large amounts of food, exercise is probably a good idea, so you can participate in one of the races being held around the holiday. One of the most famous is the Gobble Jog. There is an early bird Turkey Trot on November 20th.

If you want to give back because you are so grateful, check out some of the organizations hosting activities.

After dinner, curl up on the couch and watch A Charlie Brown Christmas, take a nap, and prepare for the second round of pie.
