Would anyone else prefer to just skip Thanksgiving all together?

It's just such a gluten filled, total lie of a holiday. I get the whole being with family thing but I don't need a holiday to want that. I'd rather just go straight to Xmas. I'm not religious so it doesn't hold that meaning for me but at least it's fun for the kids, that's why I love Xmas. The kids are so happy and I love to give to others and volunteer also. Thanksgiving is lame...lol

Well I do have to admit the daily "I'm Thankful For" on facebook from multiple different people get really annoying... but I do LOVE the FOOD! Can't pass that up!

I love to see family. We only see family usually 3 times a year.

No, I like taking each holiday as it comes. I like Thanksgiving.

My ex-husband and I skipped it for a few consecutive years. Went to friends houses or had friends over but no parents/inlaws/brothers/sisters....It was the best Thanksgivings ever. I have a new family now and I am excited to do it again.

My mom and dad are 400 miles away. DH's mom is 800 miles away. DH's dad lives down the street and we rarely see them. On Thursday this week we will be ordering pizza and watching parades and football on tv.

Yeah, I wish it was just over.  I don't have to worry about "seeing family."  Everybody in my extended family does things with their little families, we don't get together anymore.  So, I make dinner for the 4 of us plus my mom.  And it's stressful, getting things done and getting to sit down and eat and cleaned up, all before DH goes to work at 6:30 Thanksgiving night.  Just too stressful for me.

Absolutely not.  Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday!  i love the togetherness.Even if it is only my husband and our kids.  We watch the parade as I cook. Appreciate what we have and we eat.

I get it but I'm thankful all year. I don't know, to me it's just a day. To each their own I guess.
