We spent Thanksgiving with family at their home. They made a delicious traditional Thanksgiving dinner with turkey, stuffing, yams, cranberries, mashed potatoes, chocolate cake and of course pumpkin pie. They spent majority of the day preparing and cooking the least I could do is help clean up, especially if I would like to be invited back. In a world where cell phones and internet abound manners have dwindled. Please do not forget your manners! I mean come on who doesn’t love a clean cut Britain with an accent and manners?

Here are a few tips for good holiday manners:

• When someone invites you to dinner offer to bring an item to share. If they decline accept graciously but offer again the next time they invite you.

• Offer to arrive early to help prepare the meal. But do NOT just show up early. This may throw some people a curve ball.

• Help set the table the way the host would like.

• Insist on how delicious everything is!

• Clear your own plate once you are finished eating.

• Clear your Neighbors plate once they are finished.

• Basically keep clearing the table until it has been wiped and ready for use again.

• Help store any leftovers in appropriate containers.

• Help do the dishes.

• Help wipe appliances down.

• Offer to sweep or vacuum the debris from the eating area.

• Insist that the host remain seated while you clean up.

NEVER criticize the cooking or the cleanliness of the home.

And ALWAYS say Thank You!
