Thanksgiving: Host or Guest
November 20, 2017 7:37pm CST
With Thanksgiving just days away I thought I would ask these appropriate questions about the holiday. Would you rather host Thanksgiving dinner or be a guest and why? How much does it cost for those hosting to buy all the fixings to prepare your dinner? How long does it take to prepare your Thanksgiving meal. By the way, I am a guest and always bring desserts and wine. Photo- people.howstuffworks.com

I have hosted Thanksgiving at my home for years and it always costs me more than I like to think about. in money and preparation. I never stopped to think about how much or how many hours. This year we will be having Thanksgiving dinner at my sister-in-laws home.
We do not celebrate Thanksgiving in the old world (of course), but I have always hosted The Christmas Eve dinner. I started the day before to prepare a few things. The cost depends a lot on what you plan to serve, but it's not a fortune. Surely a lot less than going to a restaurant or buying ready made food.
Christmas Eve dinner is a very nice tradition. Growing up we never did that, but always went to the Christmas Evening Mass which I always enjoyed. Good point about the cost. Going out would cost a small family much more. Imagine a large gathering...
