A Thursday Question to Start the Season



We are heading into the holiday season. Some say it starts with Halloween. I believe it starts in November. I love Thanksgiving. This has always been my favorite of all the holidays. I love the food. I love family. I love everything about it.



What is You favorite way to spend Thanksgiving??

This is my burning question of the week

This guy was wandering around in my backyard yesterday!
He doesn't look worried in the least.
Do you think?

  1. I like the pumpkin pie! My daughter will cook this year, so I will enjoy it. So much hub bub at Thanksgiving and Christmas that neither holiday is my favorite.

    1. I am not a fan of pumpkin pie. But I love turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce!

  2. There's no Thanksgiving over here but here's wishing you a very happy one with all your family. Over the past two weekends, we've been able to be with both our sets of parents and see children and extended family too and we have said thanks for that and how much it means to us and to them too :)

  3. Of course with family, no matter if that year family is just hubby and me :) We have celebrated Thanksgiving in so many different ways over the years. Some years going to a movie, some years me working, some years cooking a big traditional dinner, some years going with what we wanted to cook. But just coming together when the meal is on the table and you look at gratitude for all you have, that is the best way to celebrate Thanksgiving :)

    1. Family is the best. Ours has shrunk for a variety of reasons. But we will have Justin and Paige and we three. That is a good number

  4. Hi Paula - as we don't celebrate Thanksgiving ... probably visiting bloggers and salivating at all their delicious foods! Cheers Hilary

  5. I planned my Thanksgiving menu a month ago. I like that I can cook and not worry about when we open gifts. OTOH, I have to compete with the Lions football game. We had turkeys roaming the neighborhood last year, but have yet to see them around here recently.

    1. My menu never changes. And then we have the exact same thing again at Christmas. We used to have much bigger flocks of turkeys. Not so much now!

  6. No doubt about it - spending time with family is my favorite way to spend Thanksgiving. This year I get a double whammy in that I'll be celebrating with family far and near. Two celebrations ! I'll be in two different places at different times but all in all I'll be seeing all of them for Thanksgiving and believe me when I say I'm very thankful!

  7. I cook the works for dinner and when the table is cleared, it becomes a ping pong table for the rest of the day with the football games on the TV in the background. I never had room for a regulation ping ping table, but we make it work in the dining room. This year, however, with GN being a legal adult, I guess I'm not sure if any of that appeals to her yet. We'll see. :-)

    1. LOL! I know what you are saying. We are not big at watching the football games. But we like to play board games

  8. I'm looking for a new way to celebrate Thanksgiving. Things have changed for me, so I no longer enjoy the way I used to celebrate. It's time to find a new group to do the holiday with.

  9. For years fall started with opening season for pheasant and quail, temps in the mid 50's to low 60's. Grass is sleeping and the leaves are falling like snow flakes and dogs smelling under each leaf looking for the birds

  11. We always have a big family Thanksgiving but with my dad gone now I think it's time we each start our own family Thanksgiving traditions so this may be the last one.

    1. Things may start to shrink for you now. They did here after Richard died!

  12. Yikes, that's right around the corner, isn't it? Tom was really hoping my son and family would be able to fly out and he could prepare a grand turkey dinner, but school/work/college schedules wouldn't cooperate.
    Most likely, we'll go back to Black Angus -- it was the only place I found open last year that allowed their customers to order anything off the menu. He had prime rib and I enjoyed their salmon! Best of all, no dirty dishes or leftovers!

  13. I don't mind attending a dinner but then I want to go home, put my jammies on and have a movie marathon for the next 24 hours. I like taking time to relax and enjoy just being home. I don't cook a big T-day meal any longer as I had years and years of doing that for family. However, I do bake a turkey sometime over the long weekend so I'll have leftovers for the next week. I think Halloween is the kickoff for holidays only because it is so festive. Good question!

    1. Yes, Halloween does kick off the holidays for many! I love having the Thanksgiving meal so that I can have the leftovers. The best are the leftovers!

  14. Thanksgiving is my favorite and for me, it ushers in the holidays - just like Santa used to in the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade when I was a kid. I love everything about it - the food, family - and yes the history behind it.

    Halloween just doesn't do it for me - Today, I was shopping and they were playing Christmas music. Now that was just wrong!

    1. I agree that Thanksgiving is my favorite too. I don't like all the hustle and bustle of Christmas. I hate the commercialization of it. I love Thanksgiving. I am not into Halloween either.

  15. I need to get this in my calendar. It's not a UK holiday but with an American DIL living with us we definitely need to acknowledge it.
