I know this might seem like an odd poll but not everyone is into "holidays" even religious ones. And with talking about the sales starting early on Thanksgiving made me wonder if everyone DID indeed celebrate it or not.

Yes, we do. This will be the first time my family is all coming over to my house to eat lunch. Usually it is just my family, bil and mil that eat. I will have around 20 people coming! Yikes!

I hate waiting till the last minute to decide something. That is why I just decided to have everyone over here. If they didn't want to drive an hour away they could have just had it at their house. LOL

We do, but they're not as big as they used to be. Im still trying to find out what we are doing. My mom wants it to just be my family, my sister and her kids and of course her and my stepdad.

Im not sure what df's mom has planned, and I kinda dont want to go over there :/ But with her new puppy Im not sure that she will do anything because hes a skiddish puppy.

Wow that must be hard. Does he work on an oil rig?

Quoting myownparadise:

We did up until last year. My husband works on a boat in Texas (I am in Georgia) and my parents and brother moved to Texas last year. Now, my parents and brother come home for Christmas, but not for anything else. I don't do anything grand for Thanksgiving because it is just the children and I. My husband misses Thanksgiving and Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries... everything, so I do Thanksgiving my way for the girls. Hopefully that makes some kind of sense.

It's actually my favorite holiday. it's one of the few times we all get together and just relax and spend time together.  We do not leave the house on Thanksgiving day.
