This year my family hosted Thanksgiving at our house. While we were planning logistics and the menu, I had the idea of doing a Thanksgiving Costume Party. I first polled some of the group for interest, and then sent out an email making sure that everyone would come in American history attire.
We had a great diversity of costumes including Typhoid Mary (my mom, because she was the cook!), Eleanor Roosevelt (my grandmother in a second hand mink at all), Sacajawea (my other grandmother with a feathered cap), Mr. Rogers and Charles Lindbergh (my two grandfathers).
I chose to go as Walt Disney because of his great imagination. One of the things I like best about myself is my great imagination, so I couldn’t think of a more perfect costume for me.
