Mine would be the Thanksgiving my MIL kicked me out of her house before I could step in the front door.  We had only been married 4 months and it was the first time ever that I had been away from my family for a holiday.  We traveled 3hours to get to her house.  It was the 3rd time I had met her.  The first time was when we traveled to her house to tell her in person we were engaged and for us to meet.  She spoke about 4 words to me the whole weekend.  At our wedding, she told everyone that I was a snobby bitch and looked down on her family.  

For that Thanksgiving, I had told DH I wasn't comfortable going to her house with how she had treated me.  He said it would fine.

She met us halfway up the walk screaming that Thanksgiving was for family and I wasn't a part of her family and he could just take me on down the road to the hotel and get me a room so I could eat off their Thanksgiving buffet for free while he came back to have dinner with his REAL family.

That was the last time DH ever spoke to anyone in his family.  They all stood with her and told him to make his choice...snobby little rich girl or them.

Actually it was a couple thanksgivings in a row... I grew up with a dad that had leukemia and spent many thanksgivings wondering if this was our last with him.. Watching all the horrible things my dad went through was awful from the age of 8- 15... To many bad memories...:/

Hugs hun.. That is bad!

Thanksgiving evening 2004 we found out my father was having a long term affair and later let to my parent divorce,

My worst Thanksgiving was the first year after my divorce. I had 3 kids that were 5 and under, no car, no food. My family was all 140 miles away and my ex had agreed that he would come and drive me to the store the day before so I could grab a few things to make a good dinner for me and the kids.  He never showed up and didn't answer my calls.  It was 10 degrees out and the nearest store was a 2 mile walk...too far to take the kids with no car.  So, while he enjoyed a dinner out of town with his family, we sat on the floor of the kitchen and ate creamed corn. Later, for dessert, we had cereal. We didn't even have a kitchen table yet.  It was really sad, but at least my kids were all young enough that they don't really remember it. At least I had the corn to feed them.

She meant a very important part of their family was gone. Her brother.

My first Thanksgiving after my brother died. It was the first family holiday. I was pregnant & supposed to be on bedrest, but I couldn't bear to not be there. My Dad played "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" on my brother's guitar and we all cried. His empty chair was the worst fucking feeling in the world. Our family had been amputated. It was the worst holiday ever.

When you say amputated.. what exactly do you mean?

Your family was disconected I can understand. Having very strained family ties.. I can understand. But amputated?? Not sure I get that concept.

But I am deeply sorry for your loss. 

I think your father handled it very well though..

Only one that I can think of. That was the first Thanksgiving without my grandmother.
