Start A New Thanksgiving Tradition

Thanksgiving may look a lot different this year– what with coronavirus and travel restrictions in many areas of the country. If you and your family will be sticking close to home why not start a new Thanksgiving tradition? Maybe you’re facing an empty nest this holiday season and, yes, with the travel restrictions you are still sticking close to home — a new tradition might be just what the doctor ordered!

Tried and true traditions are great BUT if you can’t enjoy them like you used to in the past, why not start something new. If you start a new tradition it may take away the yearning for the “old” traditions. If you have a spa or hot tub, why not pamper yourself and begin a Thanksgiving spa tradition?

Start A New Thanksgiving Tradition

Do you live an area of the country where the pool is still open? You can certainly have a swimming pool tradition, but we think you’ll be thanking us when you’re enjoying a spa or hot tub on Thanksgiving day. Amp up the cozy by investing in a towel warmer or toss some towels in the dryer to warm them up before you use them. Even better, invest in some luxury bath robes — you know the thick, soft kind you get at a hotel? Nothing better than that.

Treat yourself to a Thanksgiving meal of leftovers or have the meal cooking while you soak.

Roasted Goose

When you’re planning the Thanksgiving hot tub tradition, set the mood by trying some of these.

Candles are always a great way to light the hot tub space and to set a mood for relaxation and perhaps even romance. Look at craft stores or your local department store for holiday colored candles and holiday scented candles. Cinnamon, clove, pine, vanilla and pumpkin scents add to the festive feeling and may even help build an appetite!

Decorate. You can get silly and hang turkey decorations and decorate the tables and hot tub area with all things turkey. Want to set a more serious, adult mood? Pick up some fir boughs, make some leaf garland or buy some garland at your local craft store. Put pumpkins around the area then carve them and dig out the seeds and cook them up for a delicious treat. Scatter pine cones around the space and on the table with a cornucopia.

There really isn’t specific music for Thanksgiving so you can either opt to turn on Christmas songs or simply set up the sound system to plan your favorite classical music or even your favorite dance songs — your choice!

We don’t normally say you should drink and soak, but if you’re not soaking alone, consider imbibing in a glass of champagne, treat yourself to that wine you never usually buy. A mulled cider or even spiked egg nog sets the mood in a delicious way.

As mentioned, you can cook your dinner a day in advance then enjoy an easy meal of leftovers. Put the turkey on the grill and grill sweet potatoes, Yukon Gold potatoes and let them cook while you soak; don’t forget to check on them! Set a timer on your phone if necessary to make sure you don’t forget. If you don’t want to cook and really want a new tradition, order from your favorite upscale restaurant, get dinner delivered by a meal delivery service or nibble on appetizers all day.

Zoom together. Many families will be enjoying dinner “together” via Zoom. Consider doing that after you’ve enjoyed a wonderful time in the hot tub OR do it before you’ve been in the hot tub THEN go back in!

Don’t let the pandemic get you down. Many people have had to curtail travel plans and while it is not something anyone wants to do, sometimes it’s necessary to roll with it. Your new tradition may just make the day more enjoyable than you’d originally imagined.

Check out this article on Thanksgiving foods that are ideal on the grill! If you’ve never grilled a Thanksgiving dinner, this just might become a new tradition!

    My home pool is used daily by AirBnB guest. I've never had any complaints from any guest. On the contrary ALL have been very impressed by the quality of the pool water. Acquality is very responsive when any work needs to be done with pump or filter. Highly recommend them!

    I began using Acquality Pool Service in mid October 2020 after the service at my prior pool service had deteriorated. The two most important factors for me in choosing Acquality were (1) they check the water quality each visit and (2) you receive an email after each visit giving you the water quality readings and the services performed. I can confirm that this happens every visit. They also take more care and do a better job at the services such as basket cleaning, brushing walls and vacuuming than my prior company. The five star rating I have given them is earned and well deserved. I highly recommend Acquality Pool Service Corp.

    I have used their service for over 8 years, they are amazing and even send you photos and a corresponding info of all your pools detail and chemical status and what was done on each service. This is a very honorable company and a positive family business. I would highly recommend their service to anyone! Love this company and have only had an amazing experience with this company.

    I moved to Coral Gables in late March, 2020 and not long after was facing a green pool situation with previously contracted service company not even attending site or contacting me. I reached out to Carlos and Beatriz at Acquality and they sorted everything straight away. Two months on now and the Pool is sparkling clean and Carlos and his Team are here every week to do the necessary checks. I recommend Acquality very highly for all your Pool needs. You won't be disappointed or let down.

    We have had a number of pool service companies. I have never been as impressed as with Acquality. None come close. They do a terrific job, are always responsive, and take a very scientific approach to their job. First time I’ve ever had weekly chemistry’s emailed to me.I cannot say enough good things about this company. I give them my highest rating.

    They are the best pool service! Our pool was turning green from the added water that we put in and from the rain. It needed extra chlorine and they came first thing in the morning to correct the problem. Awesome service! Thank you very much!

    Carlos came ontime, very polite and knowledgeable, explain everything to my husband, added labels to everything so my husband can work the pool filter with no problem. He changed the timer and something else from the filter, used the best parts and again explained with details how to maintain our pool nice, clean and blue. If you are looking for pool services, Acquality Pool Services is the best option, incredible customer service, you can tell is a family own business. Thanks again, you just gain a forever client.
