if you were all by yourself with your immediate family in another state and didn't have the money to go to your home state to be with family and friends, would you make a meal for yourself or go out to eat as a family?


It's not that I don't like to cook, nor that we don't like the traditional Thanksgiving dinner. We don't have any friends that can come over and "hang out" they all have family here. We usually play games and watch the game of course. However, I'm looking for something new. I love to cook, it's a big passion of mine. I just want to enjoy the day though... IDK...

I'd make dinner at home. Thanksgiving doesn't have to be a big deal. Just enjoy the ones you are with.

We do a meal with friends here. If we can make it home that's awesome. We still try to make it special and cook all of the traditional Thanksgiving food (just in smaller portions).

Make a meal for yourself or see if you can go spend the day with friends. We have only spent 1 thanksgiving with family in 9 years. We've spent all the others with friends.

Growing up it was always just my mom, dad and me. We always had a Thanksgiving dinner at home.

I never eat with any family or friends. I make my own meal for our family and then we go to visit my mother, sister and step father later in the day for a little while (that is the only family both my husband and I have). I don't really socialize so I have no friends outside of the internet. and the food I cook will give us leftovers for days lol.
