Thanksgiving is quickly approaching—as seen by stores setting up Christmas decorations and displays already. If you are thinking what we are thinking it means you are considering throwing a pool party ! This solves your problem of trying to decide what to do differently this year Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving Pool Party
It sounds insane for most of the country but Phoenix is begging for it! With average high temperatures at 70 degrees or higher, there’s no excuse not to enjoy your pool in November. Especially if you have a hot tub or Jacuzzi for when it gets dark!
When you’ve spent hours upon hours cooking in a hot kitchen preparing the perfect turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes it would feel sublime to jump in the pool before serving dinner. Most of the country can’t enjoy warm weather in November but you can! Heated pools can provide relaxation, warmth, and cooling effects year round in the right climates.
You may be asking yourself “shouldn’t you wait an hour after eating to swim?”. And you’re correct to think that because we’ve all been told that since childhood. As convincing as our parents were in telling us this, it’s a myth. Even if it were true, eating an early dinner provides your company with plenty of time to digest before taking a relaxing dip. Later dinner allows for pre-dinner swims to build up an appetite. Regardless of the time of the meal, swimming before and/or after such a big meal can be fun, relaxing, and energizing.
Pull out the floaties, turn on the Jacuzzi, and bring out the beach ball and take a dip this Thanksgiving. You have the day off for a reason; enjoy it before the temperature drops a little more. Get in that inner-tube or pool lounger and digest the tryptophan and starch in the most relaxing way possible. Forget that your aunt and uncle had a fight at the table or that your nephews and nieces were screaming because you ran out of pumpkin pie.
After the kids are all taking their food-coma induced naps and your in-laws go home, why not turn on the jets and pull out the bubbly and relax in a hot tub with your closest friends and coolest family members. If you’re into Black Friday shopping, use this time to prep your body for the pushing and shoving to come.
If you’re not fond of sharing your pool with your relatives, invite your friends over the next day and eat all the leftovers pool-side in the early afternoon. Keep cool and enjoy the 4-day weekend.
