Most likely, you’ve been waiting for months for a much-needed break from work and your kids are chomping at the bit to have a few days off from school. Luckily, Thanksgiving is just around the corner, finally providing you with a time to enjoy the company of your friends and family.

As you may know from our last blog, our propane suppliers avoid going out the day after Thanksgiving for Black Friday shopping at all costs. We’ve been waiting for a holiday as well and we don’t want to spend time seeking the lowest possible discount in big box war zones.

Following Thanksgiving, you still have three wonderful days to enjoy with your friends and family. You may decide to take a breather and hang out alone for a little while as well, which is perfectly acceptable after spending so much time surrounded by people.

Our propane suppliers want to enjoy ourselves as much as possible the rest of the holiday weekend. How can you make the most of your time off this Thanksgiving weekend?

Sleep In

Sleeping in is absolutely divine and nothing beats the peace you feel when you are well-rested and don’t have to awaken at 5:30 a.m. for work. By now, it probably feels downright chilly outside, but you will feel warm and cozy resting under your comforter. Make sure to turn off your alarm clock so that you don’t wake up to a false alarm.

Go Hiking

After consuming so much rich food on Turkey Day, you may feel the need to get moving or maybe you need a break from your family. Lace up your hiking boots and head over to your favorite trail for a relaxing, exhilarating walk in nature. Nothing clears your mind like combining exercise with the peace and stillness of nature.

Play Board Games With Your Family

It seems like forever since your family has gathered together in the same place, so take advantage of this special time. Turn on your propane fireplace and gather together around the coffee table for a good old-fashioned board game. If your family is particularly competitive, we recommend against playing Monopoly, which has torn families apart in the past.

Check Out Holiday Specials

Are you a fan of Charlie Brown or The Christmas Story? If you turn on the TV, you’ll find all kinds of holiday specials on TV to enjoy with your family. If you like a good Christmas movie, you will have many to choose from this time of year.

Get Creative With Leftovers

For those of you who love to cook on your propane appliances, your options are endless with your plethora of leftovers. Don’t let that leftover turkey go to to waste. You could cook everything from turkey bolognese to eggs benedict with stuffing cakes. For more suggestions, check out our previous blog.

Drink Some Pumpkin Beer

Fall is the prime time to relish in all the glory derived from pumpkins, including beer. If you are a fan of craft beer, you can find all kinds of pumpkin beers to perfectly complement your meals and take the edge off any unwanted family political debates.

If you don’t like beer, you could indulge in a pumpkin spice latte or eat some leftover pumpkin pie. You could indulge in a glass of delicious hard cider instead, which is an excellent choice for anyone with gluten sensitivities.

Read a Good Book

Can you not even remember the last time you enjoyed a good book? Curl up with a great novel, a fuzzy blanket, a cup of hot chocolate and your dog in front of your propane fireplace. Following the hustle and bustle of Thanksgiving Day, this quiet activity could be just what you need.

Soak in the Hot Tub

Sometimes your body feels stiffer in cooler weather, so this is the perfect time to soak in your propane hot tub to relax your body and mind. You’ll feel so relaxed gazing at the fallen leaves in your backyard as the jets massage your achy back.

In order to take advantage of your holiday with these activities, you need to ensure that your propane supply doesn’t run out. Since 1937, people have chosen Disanto Propane to provide reliable, affordable and timely propane services.
