the new tradition - pumpkin soup

Once a year, my mom's special china comes out - her Thanksgiving dinner is one of the best meals I've ever had {I've been to a lot of great restaurants}. Her friends talk about the meal for weeks, some even claiming they look forward to it all year. Not only is the delivery exceptional, so is her table. She starts setting it a day or more early, dusting off her mother's china from a cabinet passed down generations, placing empty platters in the center with notes to remind her of where goes where.
