Growing up, my mom's and dad's family both called lunch, dinner and dinner, supper.

I hate traveling on Thanksgiving, so home. There will be the four of us, my sister and her daughter, and I always invite whatever grad students in my department who don't have other plans to join us. It can be as few as two or as many as te. My sister and I do the cooking but we always tell people if there is a dish from their heritage to bring it and be prepared to tell the story.

Away, about 50-100 people, buffet-style. It is an annual do at one of the Greek-American institutions in town. It is usually very nice. I like it, because left to our own devices, we probably wouldn't celebrate. At the same time, I really like the idea of Thanksgiving, so this way we end up celebrating even if we do not feel like cooking turkey.
