Are you staying home or traveling for TG?

Question re: Thanksgiving:

If you are traveling:
  1. How far are you going?
  2. Are you looking forward to it or dreading it?
If you are hosting Thanksgiving:
  1. How many are coming to your house?
  2. Are you looking forward to it or dreading it?
Is the economy playing into any of your Thanksgiving decisions?

I am going to Thanksgivings on both Thursday and Friday night with my gf's family... Only traveling about 20 miles for both. My family is spread out for both Thanksgiving and Christmas this year so I won't be with them for either

I am looking forward to it cuz i don't have to cook... even though I like cooking. Also, I will be drinking the **** ton of beer I will be getting thanks to my part time job at BevMo. Yay!

My family celebrated Thanksgiving on Saturday, but on Thanksgiving Day, I'm headed down to LA on w/ my parents and aunt. It's nice to get away but we never really do much but shop and eat. More importantly, I'll be missing watching the Sharks vs. the Stars on TV.

I will be staying home, it will be small(just my wife, my mother and I) since my wife and I both have to work that day.

I'm dreading it a little this year.

I'll be flying back up to San Jose Wednesday to catch the Sharks/Hawks game that night, celebrate Thanksgiving the next day, then celebrate both my mom and brother's birthday (they were born on the same day!), and then fly back to school Sunday.

Gonna be a good Thanksgiving.

I don't remember .... aren't there a couple hockey games played on Thanksgiving? If so, who is playing this year. Better than watching the Cowboys or whoever is playing football this year.

My sons and I are driving down to San Jose for my older boy's Silver Stick hockey tournament. Will catch the Dreaded Ginger's return to San Jose on Wed. night (Section 120, Row 15 - woohoo!). Early Thanksgiving dinner at the hotel with all the team families, with the tournament opener late that evening. Drive back to the rainy Pacific NW Sunday or Monday, depending on how deep the lads go in the tournament.

Certainly not a typical Thanksgiving, but looking forward to all of it. Well, all but the driving anyway.

If I get my car this week, I'll drive to a friend's house in Altoona, PA. If I don't get my car this week, then I'll be by myself here in Ellicott City, MD.

Decided not to travel up for the game on one of the worst travel days each year, so I'm staying down here for Thanksgiving. Going to pick up my mom and go to my friend's family's house for dinner. Nice quiet get-together. (Note: If the weather is nice, I usually like to take a nice motorcycle ride in the morning prior, but not if its raining).

Two games, both of them involving Canadian teams, natch. Leafs @ Sens and Flames @ Canucks.

As for my plans, I'm going up to mother's house in Santa Rosa for Thanksgiving, like I've done for close to the past decade.

Flying back up to the bay area on Wednesday night. LAX-SJC (which I always prefer above SFO if possible).

Its a little premature though because I actually was home for a day two weekends ago (USC vs. Stanford, my school against my dad's....)

wocka wocka wocka


I wish I were traveling (far far away), but I'll be sticking around town and regurgitating the same ol' curt stories (hopefully not the food) to feign captivating conversation with family

Though I have to give credit to my mom's two brothers, both of which know that tossing out a random SJ Sharks stat will actually get me to talk excessively, with full sincerity - and I take the bait every time

Unfortunately, I'll be making the dreaded I-5 SoCal to NorCal drive Wednesday starting around 7pm (hopefully be in the Bay by 12ish).

Which sucks, since I'll be missing the game ...

I have gone to my aunts or my moms here in the Bay Area forever. Due to the passing of some family members in recent years and my brother getting married, this year I will be going to my brothers mother in laws, so this will be a very different year for me this Thanksgiving.

Staying home. There will be two Thanksgivings, as usual. One here at home, with alternative dishes for the vegetarians. The kid will then go across town to have a second holiday with the grandparents. I opt out of that one, and have for years.

I chose, instead, to travel on New Year's Eve. To St. Paul, for a Sharks game. Yes, Virginia, I am crazy.
