I know this might seem like an odd poll but not everyone is into "holidays" even religious ones. And with talking about the sales starting early on Thanksgiving made me wonder if everyone DID indeed celebrate it or not.
Do you actually celebrate Thanksgiving?

89% - Yes we always have a family dinner/gathering
We did up until last year. My husband works on a boat in Texas (I am in Georgia) and my parents and brother moved to Texas last year. Now, my parents and brother come home for Christmas, but not for anything else. I don't do anything grand for Thanksgiving because it is just the children and I. My husband misses Thanksgiving and Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries... everything, so I do Thanksgiving my way for the girls. Hopefully that makes some kind of sense.
Our family always have one turkey. This the only time in a year that we cook Turkey! In other times, we get to eat turkey legs in Fairs. Before we always celebrate Thanksgiving in a friend's house. My friend moved away. Now we are celebrate Thanksgiving in another friend's house with several families. It is wonderful.
I still do, even though most of my mom's side of the family are deceased, except for a few cousins and a couple of aunts. I might go pay one of my cousins a visit, this Thanksgiving. But on my dad's side they take turns going to either his house or his sister-in-law's (my stepmother's sister) house, out in the country.
