1. Are you celebrating Thanksgiving at home or elsewhere this year? With whom will you spend Thanksgiving Day? I'm going to my parents' and we've actually ordered out our traditional meals. Since I've had my wisdom teeth out and Dad's having an extraction on Wednesday, so he probably won't be able chew much, either. But it's about being together. It's always about being together.

2. What do you have for breakfast on Thanksgiving? usually I have a granola bar or oatmeal

3. Do you go to a Thanksgiving parade or watch one on TV? I love the Macy's parade on TV.

4. Do you serve appetizers, lunch, or snacks during the day? our Thanksgiving meal is usually the mid-day meal, so we don't usually have apps or snacks. Sometimes we'll have an olive tray or pickles.

5. What do you wear on Thanksgiving? I generally wear my earth-tones, a skirt or dress pants

6. What's your Thanksgiving table like -- do you use special plates/silver/glasses, etc? Do you have a centerpiece? A color scheme? Candles? usually the table is laden with food so there isn't space for a centerpiece

7. Do you serve buffet-style or family-style? What do you have to drink? we serve family-style... I drink water although occasionally I'll have a glass of wine

8. Once you're at the table, do you say grace or a toast or does everyone go around and say what they're thankful for? we do a combination of grace and everyone saying what we're thankful for

9. Do you have dessert right after the main meal or later on? usually later on

10. What do you do with your leftovers? I pack them up at Dad's
