  15. Our Thanksgiving are always spent together as a family. We get together to make the food and then enjoy it. Love the smell of a homecooked meal :)

  17. I'm from Romania, so we don't have Thanksgiving Day. :( It's too bad, because I think it's a great holiday and a good opportunity to spend some time with our families. Unfortunately, I don't think we have anything similar here.

  18. No, we don't have anything like this here in Lithuania.

  19. We had a nice small family get together at my husbands grandparents house. It was nice because we didn't have to cook. And they gave us lots of deserts to take home. :)

  20. Each year, after stuffing ourselves with yumminess, we go to the local tree farm and pick us out a Christmas tree. :) A fun family tradition.

  22. All my family from my Mom's side got together to eat lots of food! (12 people all together)
    Pretty normal compared to other people's Thanksgivings.
    But my Mom, her sisters, and my Grandma have a tradition every year where they get together and go shopping for everyone's Christmas presents (generally only the kid's presents) so since they already were together they decided to go shopping early.
    I obviously wasn't along (since i'm one of the kids they're shopping for) but it is a tradition my family has.
    All in all though, I had a pretty boring Thanksgiving.

  23. We had a huge family meal and just hung out. It was my husband and my first Thanksgiving in our new home, so it was exciting to host for the holiday. Thanks for the giveaway!

  24. We had a delicious dinner at my aunt's house. We get to see people we haven't seen and it's tradition. Always great. :)

  25. We went to my Grandpa's for lunch at 2:00 and had sandwiches at my aunt's house for supper. Last night we had a real turkey dinner at my aunt's because more people could come, so it was like a belated Thanksgiving.

  26. Unfortunately, here in Brazil we do not have a Thanksgiving day =( So, it was just a normal Thursday for me.

    Although I S2 turkey, it is so difficult for me to cook it {since I lack the cooking skills, lol} and I almost never eat it, although I love it so much!!! Maybe in Christmas I'll eat some turkey in a restaurant =] 30 days to Christmas now ^^

  29. Well, even though I live in America I didn't celebrate Thanksgiving this year. It was more than less just another day for me.
    Thank you for the chance to win!

  30. Spent the day with family! Then woke up Friday morning at 5 am to go shopping with my aunt and cousin. But before that I had been writing down little things I'm thankful for, music, books (of course), fuzzy pants... things like that. It was actually really fun and made me realize how much I take things for granted. I think I might continue the list even if it's not Thanksgiving any more!

  31. We had a small family dinner which I cooked with my mom (everything homemade except for the pie that my grandma bought and brought over...she's not a domestic, typical 'grandma' kind of grandmother).

  32. My family lives out of state, so my husband and I grilled hamburgers at a friend's house. It was non-traditional, but fun.

  33. We had a very traditional thanksgiving dinner at my in-laws as we do every year. I was most thankful when we went home. I'm a terrible person, I know :)

  35. Here in the Philippines, thanksgiving is usually celebrated in Protestant Churches through beach festivals or simple church gatherings where families bring foods, to share and give thanks to God.. that's what we do each year..:D

  36. For some reason here in Wales we don't have Thanksgiving but we do have Guy Fawkes' fireworks on the 5th of November where we just blow things up (I mean fireworks) and make mayhem to celebrate and give thanks to the bombimg of the Parliament! Yeah, the british as not that enamoured with our government...

  40. We don't celebrate Thanksgiving on the traditioinal day because my mom always has to work on holidays, including Christmas and Easter. We celebrated it the saturday beforehand. My dad and I went up north to hunt and for the first time I got a doe. It was a pretty awsome moment for us and I even got him to cry. It was a good Thanksgiving. When we did celebrate it, my mom was in a pretty cheery mood and had the best potatoes and turkey cooked. :)
