Hickory Farms #HolidayTradition Giveaway!

My earliest Thanksgiving memory is also my favorite. It comes back to me every Thanksgiving when we are sitting at the table and waiting for the turkey to appear.

My mom called everyone to the table for Thanksgiving dinner. We sat there and waited for my Mom to start putting the food on the table from the kitchen.

And we waited.

And we waited.

And we waited.

My grandfather tried to distract fidgety and hungry four year old me by teaching me a trick he guaranteed would make the food come faster.


My grandfather put an upright fork and knife in my little fists and taught me how to bang them up and down on the table. I didn't know this was rude - hey, I was four! - all I knew is I was having a good time making a lot of noise that guaranteed to put the turkey on the table.

Everyone watched me in amusement because they weren't sure if  my mom would flip since she stressing herself out trying to create the perfect dinner or laugh and relax a bit.

 My mom ran into the room to see what all the noise is about. I loudly declare that grandpa taught me to make the turkey cone faster. My mom couldn't punish me because her dad was the instigator.

Instead, she popped a fancy thing called an hors d'oeuvres (Hickory Farms sausage on a cracker) into my mouth from the buffet table to keep me quiet. Many Americans have a distinct memory of Hickory Farms at their holiday gatherings and to this day Hickory Farms is part of our holiday celebration although I don't bang my silverware on the table anymore. My parents stopped that tradition as quickly as it started.

For more than 60 years Hickory Farms gifts have been a classic holiday tradition that brings family and friends together. Hickory Farms is very proud to be a part of those nostalgic moments and continues to focus on and celebrate its long heritage of tradition and authentic holiday memories.

Hickory Farms is available In over 700 over their Holiday Market stores and kiosks across North America, as well as in select retailers. You can also purchase gift boxes and baskets online at www.HickoryFarms.com.

Now that we are kicking off the Season of Giving, I want to give my holiday tradition to you! I'd invite you all over to enjoy the Beef Hearty Hickory Gift Hickory Farms was kind enough to send us but we already ate it.

Let's do a giveaway and have Hickory Farms send you one of your very own instead!
