Old and New Traditions

Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the holiday season. Family traditions come out, and new ones are made. Family and friends come together to celebrate this in many ways. Some start their day gathered around their television to watch the famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade; others begin to prepare their favorite dishes; while others play or watch a football game. One thing everyone has in common is their appetite for Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings — turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie to top it off!  Family traditions will, hopefully, never be broken. However there can always be room for adding something new.  Here are some ideas…

Happy Thanksgiving

  • Show ‘n Tell → Have each family member bring a few items, large or small, to describe what they are grateful for. This fun little twist will surely bring your family closer together!  
  • Give → Gather things to donate to a local charity and make the holiday season a little brighter for those in need.
  • Plan → Over dessert, your family can plan how to divide and conquer the holiday shopping list.  Be sure to check your Prewards® offers and discounts on gifts you may already planned to purchase.  Don’t forget to bring essentials with you to get you through the big day – like your Debit MasterCard® and a nutritious turkey sandwich.   Keep tabs on your account balances while you shop – make sure you have downloaded the Standard Bank Mobile Banking app before you leave home.  

Whether a tradition is old or new — this holiday show gratitude to the people you care about.  Here at Standard Bank, we would like to give our deepest thanks to you — our loyal customers and friends — and wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.
