My American friends are gearing up for their Thanksgiving holiday coming this week. So I think it's a great time to have that as a topic. I'm interested in the customs you followed as a child or follow now, for the American Thanksgiving. I think I recall that a huge shopping day follows your Thanksgiving traditions! Hubby and I were once in Salt Lake City during Thanksgiving and wow, it was a huge deal!
We couldn't find a restaurant for a meal, finally had to settle for one in a rather expensive hotel. It wasn't the best food but it was kind of fun. The next day I remember seeing young children, families out until near midnight, shopping! It was all new to us.
So I'd love to know more about traditional foods (I suspect they are much like our Canadian ones) and fun things you did as a child or do now as an adult on your Thanksgiving
