I usually cook on holidays, but this year I'm not. I am going over to my husband's aunt's home and have dinner with his family this year. They are cooking up a feast we will be having: Turkey,Ham,Chicken,Chitterlings,Potato Salad,Macaroni and Cheese,Sweet Potato Casserole,Collard Greens,Dressing,Corn,String Beans and Potatoes,Corn,Cornbread,Biscuits,Dinner Rolls,Sweet Potato Pie,Pecan Pie,Pineapple Cake,Lemon Pound Cake and probably alot of other stuff that I just can't remember right now. Yeah, I know that's alot of food, but they do have a pretty large size family and therefore there has to be a large variety of food. So what's on your menu? How and what kind of traditions do you carryout each holiday season?

That sounds alot like what my aunt and uncle had at their house. The kids and I went over for a little while after we had eaten our dinner at home.

You could always have a lil get togeather if you don't have a holiday. I know in the olden days before people worked on sundays people ate big meals with their families. I kinda wish things were still that way ya know? Everyone is always soooo busy with their jobs and families in modern times.

Get together comes only if family members are not that really busy. Usually once a month or once every 2 months. I envy people in the States who always find time to be together especially in their Thanksgiving. But its always good to know that we are celebrating Christmas and New Year still..

We're in Canada, and Thanksgiving is in October. However, my husband is an American, so we celebrate both. Not being able to find a turkey, we ordered two "festive specials" from Swiss Chalet, a really good restaurant here in Canada, that specializes in chicken. We had their "festive specials," which are made up of a chicken leg, a white roll, mashed potatoes, gravy, and chocolates for dessert.
