Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays! :D Most years it is a huge turkey dinner here for those who can make it home. With our children spread all over the country, it is hard to get everyone together these days but someone is always with us. :) The Friday after (when most go shopping) it is a tradition for our oldest daughter and I to decorate the mantle on the fireplace (living room one) for Christmas. We have such fun and it just seems to kick off the Christmas season for us! :dance:

I'll probably put my Christmas tree up the day before Thanksgiving. I'll probably spend the night over at my moms.
I'll have dinner over at my mom's and I don't know how many of my brothers and sisters. I hope to get together with my youngest brother, my older sister and my mom talk about the three of us (my sister, brother and I) taking over most of the cooking for mom. I know she likes to cook, but she's so tired from all the cooking, she can't enjoy the big meal. I would just like to take some of the duties off her hands. She's more than earned the break.

Mllp, your story of your day after Thanksgiving is sweet. :D

Hi all, as we know, eating is one of the subjects of Thanksgiving. I love turkey. BTW, here is a Thanksgiving turkey quiz to test your knowledge of it. Cheers.
