This year I’m taking the challenge. The Thanksgiving Unplugged challenge. This brilliant movement was started by two of my favorite people in the industry Mr. Manners, Thomas Farley and Diane Gottsman of the Protocol School of Texas.

What’s Thanksgiving Unplugged? A challenge for Americans to disconnect from their digital devices before sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner. Instead of fixing their gazes on LCD screens or popping in earbuds, families will commit to focusing on giving thanks, savoring a good meal and enjoying the company of their relatives and friends. Freed from the increasingly inescapable distraction of cell phones, laptops, tablets, hand-held games, music players, social media and the web, families will once again reconnect with the true spirit of the holiday.

Are you up for it?
