June 27 - Summersgiving Day

Posted on June 27, 2020

(Saturday after the summer solstice)

I have to admit that I've never heard of Summersgiving, until this year - and this year is definitely not the best year to start a large-group-eating-together tradition. (Global pandemic!)

Back in 2009, a man named Robert Solomon was thinking about the fact that he loved traditional Thanksgiving foods but only got to eat them once a year.

Then he decided, heck with that! He invited his best friends to celebrate summer AND feast on rich-and-savory Thanksgiving foods! 

And that's how Summersgiving was born.

Of course some people might want to celebrate Summersgiving with special summer versions of traditional Thanksgiving foods. For example, I can imagine eating BBQ turkey, cold cranberry-citrus jello salad, and summer mashed potatoes. Who wants to use the oven in the summertime? Instead of pie, maybe homemade pumpkin ice cream!
