New Thanksgiving Traditions to Add to Your Celebration

Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from Gossett KIA

As Thanksgiving approaches, you are probably planning your menu and inviting guests. But, if you’re also looking for ways to enhance your Thanksgiving feast, try adding one of these new Thanksgiving traditions to your family meal.

  • Create a Thankful Journal. Buy a special notebook just for Thanksgiving. Each year, have your family members share the things they were thankful for over the past year. Write their thoughts in the journal. Nothing is too small. Over the years, looking over family milestones will make you feel happy and thankful.
  • Memory Tablecloth. For a truly Thanksgiving-worthy centerpiece, purchase a plain light-colored tablecloth and some fabric pens. Ask each guest to write down something special they are thankful for. You can trace the hands of children too young to write. It will quickly become your favorite Thanksgiving decoration.
  • Help those in need. To help you feel the true spirit of Thanksgiving, find a way to help those in need. Volunteer at a local food bank or soup kitchen to help serve those who are less fortunate than yourself.
  • Include the children. Plan an activity just for the children. This could be as simple as making Thanksgiving crafts to taking orders and serving the dessert.

Updated 2017 Kia Soul Gets More Power with New Engine

Since its introduction in 2008, the Kia Soul has been a fan favorite. Since then, Kia has done a good job keeping the Soul updated with eye-catching style, lots of technology, and affordable pricing. Now, the updated 2017 Kia Soul gets a boost in power, one thing the Soul has always needed.

KIA Soul – Available at Gossett KIA

Buyers will be able to choose a new 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that delivers 201 horsepower–a big improvement over the current engines that deliver only 164 or 130 horsepower. The new engine will also be paired with a new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, which should improve both acceleration and fuel efficiency.

In addition to a new engine, the 2017 Soul will also get a few visual updates, especially on the Turbo model. The Turbo updates include a model-specific front bumper and grille, unique 18-inch wheels, and red-painted trim highlights. Inside, the Turbo model will include a flat-bottomed steering wheel and unique upholstery with orange contrast stitching.

The updated Soul also gets new technology. The UVO infotainment system gains both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay technology. On the safety side, the Soul will have available blind-spot assistance with rear cross traffic alert.

The 2017 Kia Soul will be coming to Gossett Kia by the end of the year.
