People share what they do on this special holiday.
Everyone has their own traditions on Thanksgiving so I decided to ask around to see if anyone had any interesting or unusual things that they did.
1. A Popular Choice
"My family wakes up and watches the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade while eating cinnamon rolls and looking at the ads in the paper for Black Friday"
3. In Ecuador...
"My family is Ecuadorian on my moms side so we have half traditional Thanksgiving food and half Ecuadorian food (i.e. arroz con gandules, empanadas, platanos). We watch the parade too, my brothers and I grab blankets and squeeze into my parents bed even though we are too big now and we watch the parade.
The Rockettes and the Broadway performances are a favorite"
4. Get Out the Flour
"We always eat dinner at my grandmas house, then my dad watches the football game and we paint turkey and pumpkin shaped cookies with food coloring"
6. Tradition With a Twist
"My family always watches the parade and football and we usually have pretty traditional food, but since I am a vegetarian I usually eat mashed potatoes and mac and cheese"
7. Its One Big Party
"We invite literally my entires mom's side of the family to our house and we cook the traditional Thanksgiving meal (seriously all the classics are there and I eat way too much stuffing usually) and during dessert everyone goes around and says what they are thankful for. All the aunts and older cousins go Black Friday shopping"
8. Scared No More
"My Thanksgiving is pretty normal but I have started to go to my boyfriends Thanksgiving instead of mine and last year I got a little of everything and fell in love with the stuffing. The only problem is that I was all the way across the house and if I wanted to get more I would need to walk past literally everyone and I was too scared to so I just sat there longing for it. This year my plan is to get a TON of it. Also I went Black Friday shopping for the first time last year with my mom and what started as a quick trip to Old Navy turned into a long excursion that left us out until 2am"
9. It's Christmas
"My family doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving so we have a second Christmas during that time"
