My family will be going out again this year for dinner. Sure, there's not going to be leftovers but it's worth it - There's not going to be any DISHES EITHER! (laughs manically).

Seriously, who wants to do dishes after stuffing themselves until they feel like a beach ball and just want to sleep it off for a week. No one!

Just me, at my apartment in Feixian, Shandong, China. No turkeys to speak of for at least 200 kilometers. Guess I'll have to settle for duck this year, haha.

We're having dinner at my sister's house this year.

My tiny family of blood relatives are all in different states so we're going to my "niece's" house. She is actually my best friend's daughter but she has called me Aunt Cheri for 26 of her 30 years.

We are having Thanksgiving at our house for the first ever it should be interesting.

I'll be driving to my grandma's house... two miles north of my house. But, my aunt, uncle and two cousins will make the two hour trip to come here since we went there last year.

@dmaz: We're doing a ham; I can upload you some leftovers, if you like.

@gigi889: Oh, you poor thing! Does hubby cook the soup? Perhaps you can greet his friends with a printed copy of the recipe, all the ingredients laid out, and your car keys in hand to allow you to flee for the mall? (Or the library, or park, or Anywhere Else?)

We're going to my son and DIL's home, just across town, although we're bringing about half the meal with us. My sister and BIL are driving 90 minutes to join us. For as reasonably close as we are geographically, we only see Sis and BIL once or twice a year, so we're all looking forward to the get-together.

2.5 hours northbound (not counting traffic) to my aunt's for dinner with aunts, uncles, cousins, and my mother. We'll probably leave at some ungodly hour on Wednesday night to hopefully avoid some of the traffic crunch. Last year it was the airport just after they introduced the "enhanced" pat downs and scanners to fly to Boston for Thanksgiving with the inlaws. So much holiday fun.

I'm going to be hosting for the first time. I'm pretty much located at the central hub of the scattered family, and my sister, who usually hosts, just moved to an apartment that has a tiny kitchen. That got me elected host.

This is going to be interesting, though, as I'm vegetarian and the rest of my family is very much not. My sister is actually going to show up the day before to cook the turkey first thing in the morning.

We host brunch for friends, and then everyone parts ways to spend the afternoon with family. Still have to host, but not nearly as much to clean up.

@magic cave: I strain the bones (he tried it once) then the rest is up to him. His buddies are very nice, but there are a few he just WON'T LEAVE. I do go to the mall and walk (I confess, I'm a mall walker) and watch the crazy people shop.

@gigi889: Sounds like a perfect way to spend the day. My son is also a runner; lot of marathons and halves behind him, and he's now training for his second ironman. (As much as I love him, I find the entire concept somewhat demented.)
