Question of the Week

What’s your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?

Anna Paone, U-M sophomore, Metuchen, N.J.
“I think I’m going to have to go with eating a lot and spending time with family.

Jan-Henrik Andersen, associate professor of industrial design, School of Art & Design
“I didn’t grow up with Thanksgiving. So I’m making my own tradition by welcoming the annual release of Beaujolais Noveau, the French harvest wine, which coincides with Thanksgiving.”

Marna Clowney-Robinson, circulations supervisor, Music Library
“The thing I like best that’s a tradition in my family is sharing. Not just sharing of food, sharing of each other, because we’re all scattered all over the country. We share what’s been going on and what we’re thankful for each year.”
