The only think I do for Thanksgiving is to wonder where we will be going. The cook never cooks here on Thanksgiving in order that the cook is also thankful. Our choice is to go out, but there are many in the family that do not agree and insist the we come to their house.

I have a nice organic chicken in the freezer. I think we'll have that. It's just the two of us and Shreddy, the cat. We'll be celebrating a week from Monday 'cause we are in Canada. I'll probably stuff it. Still have to figure out sides.

Thanksgiving is / has been at a BIL's for years. Last year he wanted to grill hot dogs/ brats. Fine by some. He got out voted by his own household. But Really, if you want to grill, a turkey is less work than flipping burgers and dogs. But Really, it's as much as getting together with family. I think his lip is still bent he didn't get his way. But really, I need to remind him how good a Turkey Sandwich the next day is and he can Relax while his wife and daughters are out shopping. Or is that perhaps too scary a thought !

No matter which holiday, we have a large enough family, everyone volunteers to share their speciaty.

Christmas, on the other hand, is up for grabs this year. I know we ( meaning DxW) are one who vol'd to host. We'll see how plans for Christmas shapes up right about Thanksgiving time.

I haven't done bird day for over 25 years, since the last time, 3 days after giving birth to my son, when the horde descended, did not offer to help, but felt free to sit around and criticize the entire meal. I did do a bird day for my dad a couple of years before he died. The others were invited but cancelled at the last minute. Apparently they were ticked off that, acquiescing to my father's wishes, I made a ham instead of a turkey. So rather than one of them offering to bring a bird, they just got pissy and cancelled at the last minute for made-up reasons - but spread the word far and wide that the REAL reason was me "taking over" bird day, LOL! Like any of them had done a single holiday meal for the whole family since I quit doing them, or offered to do it that year, or even to bring something!

I figure he who pays, says. Also the 87 year old guy gets first choice. I don't care what it is - even if it's brats and hot dogs. He only had one or two bird days after that. And actually *I* paid for the whole thing (which they didn't even show up for) as they had bled him dry for the month already and he didn't even have grocery money. No one offered to so much as bring a couple cans of corn. And they STILL complained because when they showed up to take leftovers home, over the next few days, I hadn't made a pumpkin pie, just apple pie and chocolate chip cookies, LOL! How thoughtless and self-centered can you get? My dad didn't like pumpkin pie, hadn't asked for it, they didn't even show up for the day despite saying they would, and then they had the colossal gall to complain about the leftovers, ROFLMAO!

IMHO that's not family; that's leaches. I'd try to stay as far away from them as possible. The sad part is that we are supposed to love and forgive everyone. Sometimes, it's hard. But nowhere is it said that we have to hang out with them.
