Atypical Thanksgiving traditions abound in the Lehigh Valley

Tossing the tradition to the curb.

Before digging into that tasty Thanksgiving meal or rushing out catch the Black Friday deals, people are finding other creative ways to spend their Thanksgiving.

Tossing the tradition to the curb, some are turning to alternative ways like going out for a rigorous exercise, bowling, or catch the latest flick on the big screen.

The Laubach family chooses to opt out from a family meal in order to lace up their bowling shoes and chase those lucky strikes at Jordan Lanes in Whitehall Township.

“It goes back quite a few generations,” Chris Labach said.

“My wife’s family has been bowlers their whole lives growing up and they passed the tradition on.”

The Dobil family says they enjoy a simple stroll in the Trexler Park while counting their blessings, before getting to those calories at the table.

And for Awilda Nunez, of Lehigh Valley, catching the latest flick gives more time for the turkey to roast.

“The turkey is cooking and while it’s cooking I came to watch the movie,” she said.
