“Did you know your mom was a hippie?” “Have we told you the story about how your grandparents left Europe? Or how dad was caught streaking in high school?
Dinnertime stories. They are typically spontaneous, sometimes poignant, often funny and usually the most memorable part of the dinner.
This Thanksgiving, when your family is gathered around the dinner table and the stories start flowing like the wine, pull out your smartphone and capture them. It’s time to Save the Stories. And Stories Worth Retelling is going to help you with their free “Save the Stories” kit that includes ideas, tips and how to’s on collecting this year’s best Thanksgiving stories through video, audio and photos.
