What are everyone's plans for Thanksgiving this year? Will you be going away, or staying home? Is Thanksgiving a big holiday for your family? Do you have any traditions you'd like to share?
We are eating with my ILs, and each year we kind of vote on who's going to host. . . Well, this year Michael and I got picked/volunteered, LOL! I'm a bit nervous. I'm not great at hosting, and my ILs---with all their kids and spouses---total 18 people!! And that's not including our immediate family, which is another 6. Fortunately, I think my DH will do most of the cooking (And trust me, that's a good thing!). It's still a bit nerve-wracking, but I love my ILs, and look forward to spending the day with them.
The one tradition we have (which comes from my DH's family as well) is to bring a little symbol to the table of what you're thankful for in the past year, and state what it is and why you're thankful. So we'll be doing that. Other than that, the tradition is just to eat, eat, eat, and though we have turkey and all the fixings, my ILs are Italian-American and bring tons of good pasta dishes and pastries. Yum!!
