    I love the holidays specially Thanksgiving. We are going to spend it at my parents house. I'm excited to see my nephews and nieces. There will be plenty of food and of course the main dish turkey. icon_biggrin.gif

    This year we're spending Thanksgiving with two good friends who just recently got married at City Hall in San Francisco, and some other guys as well. It'll be a 'just the guys, no women dinner'.

    My grandparents were my family, and they were terrific, but they're gone now. My s.o. has family on the east coast, but that's too far to go for a holiday dinner. I think a lot of gay people choose to spend time on holidays with their good friends, especially if their families are gone, or are disagreeable/homophobic, etc.

    My take: If your family is not a good one, spend your time with people you actually like.

    Yay for working retail.

    may i add... happy THANKSGIVAKKUAH .... imagine turkey and a menorah. and latkes. and everything else tossed into the mix. no family for me this year. i'm flying a 4 day trip that begins the morning of thanksgivakkuah and ends late afternoon/early evening on the dreadful worst travel day of the year, SUNDAY!! layovers are in boston, chicago and detroit. yep, even with 28 years, i still cannot dump a trip on this dreaded 4 day nightmare. i HATE this time of year to be perfectly honest. from a week before thanksgiving all the way through the first week of new years. pack your patience folks, it's going to be one hell of a travel season. and not in a good way either.

    hey josh, let me pack you in my crew case so we can enjoy the madness together. you in retail, and me in the airline industry. we've had THIS discussion before. nothing would make my trip more enjoyable than to unpack you, and curl up next to you after dealing with the crazy insane once a year flyer. AHHHHHHHHHHH

    With my roommate and his mother. Don't know if she will cook. I wouldn't dare. Would rather eat bologna at home!

    We're hosting for some friends that have no place else to go. My family will celebrate at my ex's (which we were invited to) but thought it was important to give others that have no place to enjoy a place to go. Anyone in the area that needs a place to kick back, eat, drink and be merry…let me know icon_smile.gif

    My favorite holiday. When I was a child, the favorite would have been Christmas, a great holiday for children. But Christmas was all snow, family, presents and toys. As an adult, Thanksgiving is celebrated with the extended family I have chosen to be a part of. For more than 10 years, we have had the same group of friends (with occasional additions) over for a long celebration centered on dinner, which has been cooking all day. Looking forward to it. Miss only the snow.

    Awesome Mike! Good luck, I'm sure it'll be fine! Make sure you tell them when they're still in their turkey/stuffing induced comas....

    I'll be at my Mom's in southwest Michigan with one of my 6 siblings and her family. Can't wait for stuffing and sweet potatoes!

    With a couple dozen gay friends at a private house. Weather permitting it'll be poolside outdoors, as in previous years. Not very evocative of the original Pilgrim conditions, instead Floridian. But do any of our tables replicate what really happened nearly 400 years ago?

    Aristoshark saidNowhere (sniffle). Warming a can of beans over the flickering light of a candle.


    Save the candle for light later.

    Maybe there will be a miracle and your beans will last for eight days.

    Should be an AWESOME day! May decide to have my first Thanksgiving with my episcopal church family as my own are going to be gone (I could go, but just can't with my schedule). I've always hear some great things about all the food church members bring. Sounds fantastic.
