If you celebrate Thanksgiving, what are you doing this year?
I'm going to Rome, Italy.
Family and a few friends will gather at my daughter's house. Pam and I generally prepare the meal together.
My aunt and cousin are coming to stay with us from Georgia.
I'm cooking this year. So my sister and her family, my brother and his family and my Mother-in-law and brother-in-law, plus assorted others will meet at my home. We'll have turkey, spiral ham, mashed potatoes, sausage stuffing, sweet potatoes, cranberries and relish, salad, green beans almondine, spoonbread (cornbread) and vast quantities of desserts, featuring my sister's home made pumpkin and apple pies, along with butter cookies - slightly burnt for more flavor. We will give thanks, eat, drink and be merry. How knows, maybe the Scrabble board will be taken out for a game or two.
What I did, about a month ago for OUR thanksgiving was have my boyfriend over. He met my parents for the first time.
I will join my husband in W.Va. on Thanksgiving Day to have dinner with his parents and some of their family. He will go over Wednesday to hunt through Friday. On Friday evening we will go to my parents' and have a second feast. My husband is going hunting for the first time up there - Dad is taking him to the location.
I'm taking the Wednesday before as a vacation day. On Thanksgiving morning, I'll probably go to church. Lunch will be at my brother-in-law's and dinner will be at my brother's. We'll have potluck at both places and the food will be much better at my brother's because my side has the better cooks!
I'm going to Atlanta to visit my siblings and their spouses. Actual Thanksgiving Day dinner will be at my sister, Colleen's.
Mark me "undecided".
If I can find a big meal with friends, I'll go, but usually just another work day for me.
That's a good question. We could be going to Colorado. We could be going to my parents' house, then my husband's parents' house. We could be going to my parents' house, then my husband's grandparents' house. If anyone finds out, please let me know.
Quiet dinner at home with just immediate family.
We normally leave these to other family members who can actually remember names. My wife shows up with a dish to both of them, I show up with a 12 pack for the one for her family and a camera for the one for mine.
I'm not cooking this year. Janet is cooking. I'm just bringing some dederts and side dishes!!
party at my house for thanksgiving.
im not a
person who is into the holiday spirit thing. i consider the holidays just
another day. i try to socialize with family but i usually end up in my
room or out of the house.
is coming. she is like my saving grace. i wouldnt be able to handle this
stuff if she werent here. we planned to go travelling the world instead
of being here but it didnt happen so i guess we will go to italy for spring
break. yay!!!! i am so glad she is coming.
