What are you guys doing for Thanksgiving?

Me, I'm just going over to my grandparents house for a nice, quiet, meal. And my grandma's an awesome cook too.

Same thing I do pretty much every year: take a train on home to the Bronx and spend all day with my immediate family and have dinner with them, then take the subway to my grandmother's place for more food, then to my aunt and uncle's place, then to my best friend's place, etc. My Mom's often done with dinner at around 3PM, so there's plenty of time to go all over the place for food.

I'm really excited about food this year.

Oh ok. It's in October here. I might have had a "family party", but it was not related to Thanksgiving.

I'm working in a liquor store so everyone can have alcohol to help them deal with having to spend time with family.

I highly dislike Thanksgiving food, so, I'll stick with just a few glasses(or a bottle) of wine later that evening when I finally make my way home from work.

Thanksgiving food has never appealed to me. Turkey isn't that great, Mashed Potatoes are usually edible, Cranberry sauce doesn't appeal to me, but the corn is fantastic. Unsurprisingly, I was quite a picky eater until recently. I have broader horizons now, but I'm still pretty close-minded when it comes to food. I mean, I'll try it, but I don't like much that I try.

My fianc and I are bringing cranberry sauce and a pumpkin pie over to my mom's place. We do sort of a pot-luck thing, where we contribute something to dinner. My sister usually brings wine but my parents are getting it instead. My grandmother and great-aunt bring rolls and other treats, while my uncle and his wife bring some veggies.

And the cranberry sauce isn't the jellied crap that comes out of a can. This stuff is made from scratch and is dee-lishus.

I was at church growing up, and when they called the little kids up to the front with the pastor, they went around and said what they thanked god for on thanksgiving. some 4 year old kid said "thank god for the detroit lions". fag.

that's nothing. i first met my eldest stepsister's boyfriend (how husband) eddie on thanksgiving four years ago. my stepmom has the retarded idea of everyone drawing a name from a hat and then saying what you're thankful for about that person. of course, i draw the guy i've never met before. so i pull out of my ass: "I'm thankful that Eddie's name is almost a palindrome."

And you should've said that you were thankful that his name was close to your offspring bbs nickname.

I would like to point out that turkey dressing and sweet potato casserole are both immediate wins. The casserole isn't always traditional, but hey, it still pwns.

I almost asked why people in Denmark celebrate thanksgiving... then I remembered that Per is from the US. Anyway, quitcherbitchen. ;)

is this a serious question? if so, no, you don't put it on turkey. it's cranberries in kind of a gel also made from cranberries. I've never been a huge fan of cranberries cause they're so tart, so I usually take the smallest portion of them I can.

If by "turkey dressing", you mean "stuffing", then hell yes. Sometimes I make a box of stove top for an entire meal. Nothing beats homemade stuffing, though.

Oh ok. It's in October here..
The original Thanksgiving was Dec. 14,1619 at Berkley Plantation,between Jamestown and Richmond,at least here in the U.S. We should hold it on that date instead of changin' it around each year.

I'd rather it always be on a Thursday. That way, you have a sure shot of a four-day weekend every year, unlike that other holiday that was on a Saturday.

I think Lincoln was the one who made it a National Holiday.

Also, I think December 14 is too close to Christmas.

The way Thanksgiving in the states usually goes is something like this:

The airport is a total nightmare the day before. Huge crowds, high demand, and any delays or cancellations create a nightmare situation. The day of, we see relatives we normally don't talk to (and are reminded of why) but we try not to start any fights. Then we gorge ourselves on turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, candied yams, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie (some of us are vegetarians so we skip the turkey and stuffing). After eating, it's time to fall asleep in front of the TV during the American football game. Eventually everyone leaves but the house is a mess and dirty dishes are everywhere. After Thanksgiving is Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year. (Supposedly it's been usurped by the Saturday before Christmas, but it's called "Black Friday" because retailers will be "in the black.") Finally, on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, the airport nightmare is relived as people return home from seeing their relatives.

Then the airport gets crowded again for Christmas...

I have to drive 3 hours though, so no airport for me. It's quite a boring car ride.
