For Thanksgiving in the past, we generally go to relatives or friends so I just cook a side dish or dessert. For Christmas, we have dinner here and I cook everything except the turkey and gravy. My husband does that (and does a great job too).
I am not sure what we are doing this Thanksgiving. I don't want to travel (family is 5 hours on a good day by car) and my local friend with whom we have spent T-day at for the last couple of years is going through marital strife so we probably will not go there this year.
We take turns in my family and rotate who hosts and cooks the main dish. Everyone always chips in to make some of the sides though. This year, I think I am hosting Christmas, but I could be wrong. lol My mom keeps track of who is hosting what.
I usually do. My sister helps when she and her family get here.
I love it when my aunt and uncle can make it out here for Thanksgiving- my aunt loves to cook, and I don't, so I turn the kitchen over to her : )
Generally my MIL hosts and cooks the main part of the meal and the rest of us bring side items.
I do 90% of the cooking almost every year.
me, both, no doubts.
