Thanksgiving Traditions at North

Drey Woodson-- Generally, Drey Woodson spends Thanksgiving at his grandmother’s house along with his extended family.  They usually watch the Macy’s Day Parade and play monopoly.  For Thanksgiving dinner, they have the traditional turkey, pumpkin pie, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes (which the North Forsyth senior remembered because he always has to cut up all the potatoes) and lots of sweet tea.  Before the meal, they all say a family prayer, and then they can eat.
