Traditionally Tim and I celebrate by cooking Martin Luther King's favorite meal: fried chicken, sweet potatoes, green beans, mac & cheese, sweet tea and homemade pecan pie.
This year we decided to rope in some of our friends to join in the celebration. Each couple brought a side and Tim got his Colonel Sanders on and cooked fried chicken in our new turkey fryer. It was a feast!
Tim and I also like to to celebrate MLK Day by watching a documentary about his efforts to transform the civil rights movement in America. There's still so much about this great man we don't know! Btw, Netflix has a wide selection of documentaries in their "watch it instantly" section.
We'd love to know if you have any other traditions or creative ways to celebrate Martin Luther King Day. There's so much more to this special day than just taking time off from work and not getting our mail!
"I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." - MLK
