Whether you had an unusual dish, the regular fixings or your family plays games or watches football, every family has its Thanksgiving traditions. Share yours with us!
No matter how typical or unique your Thanksgiving, every family has its own traditions. Without them it wouldn't feel like the holidays. Every Thanksgiving, my family gathers in the living room of my aunt and uncle's house and watches football while we snack on hors d'oeuvres while my grandmother carves the turkey. We have the traditional turkey and all the fixings and always three kinds of pie—pecan, pumpkin and apple. Whether you have the traditional meal or your family reenacts the first Thanksgiving, we want to hear about your traditions! Comment in the comments section below about what your family and friends do for the holiday. Happy Thanksgiving!

Will you prepare this year's Thanksgiving meal at your home or will you travel to a relative or friend's home?
The cost of making Thanksgiving dinner has jumped dramatically this year, reports the American Farm Bureau Federation. The average cost to prepare a traditional dinner for 10 is $49.20, 13 percent more than the average of $43.47 last year. Compared to eating at a restaurant, though, the higher price is still a bargain, coming in at less than $5 per person. For some, paying a little more to enjoy the atmosphere of a restaurant—and, of course, to bypass hours of meal preparation—is worth the money. For others, the smell of turkey in the oven and home baked pumpkin pie is the only way to enjoy Thanksgiving. In today’s poll, we want to know where you plan to spend Thanksgiving dinner this year. Will you be enjoying a home cooked meal or …
