    I actually have only had a bowl of cereal for breakfast and we are shooting for two pm. Looks like we are somewhat on schedule. This started when my Grandparents were alive and we had it at their farm. It was about an hour and forty five minute drive. Yes, snack on leftovers and more dessert after five.

    We’ll be eating around 1:00. That’s our normal meal time because we both get up stupid early for work (2AM). Today is no different.

    Growing up, I was a Raider fan, so to me Los Angelenos are the new husband. The old girl's getting a bit shopworn now....

    Nosh all morning and early afternoon, eat Thanksgiving dinner around 3, digest for a few hours and then pies and other assorted dessert type goodies. That's about what we do. Thanksgiving dinner is not a constant, it varies some from year to year.

    Down south where I live, “dinner” is the noon meal. We have always had the Thanksgiving dinner at noon or thereabouts. The evening meal is “supper”.

    It must go back to the agrarian days when a big meal was required for afternoon farming.

    We always eat at the same time we normally eat dinner (around 6 pm).

    We're heading over to a blowout type gathering at my daughter in law's sister's place. We were all going to be at the daughter in law's place, but I just found out it was moved to her sister's place. More room! It's quite an affair. Somehow in the excitement and all I missed that it had been moved. But I still feel lucky, even though I'm a punk!

    My wife and I are on are own this year so we are going for 3:00. It's nice not to have to travel and just chill out after dinner.

    I'm not vaccinated and looked upon inconsiderate and selfish so any mention of a family event is a distant memory and will continue to be for many years.

    We always ate around 6 pm and we continue that tradition.

    I don't care much about the Raiders one way or the other.

    I do like Thanksgiving very much though. My favorite holiday of the year.

    Thanks to all the folk here who provided me with lots of useful Tele info, along with general guitar and music stuff too.
    And I guess a lot of camaraderie of a sort as well.

    Much appreciated.

    I like the early time if its a big setup with a lot of people. That way you can get it over with. Then kinda gnaw on leftovers while doing a bunch of nothing

    I'm the cook. So, we eat later in the day, around 6ish. No way that I am getting up at 5am to cook Thanksgiving dinner. I enjoy cooking the meal. It's nice to do this for my family. They appreciate it.

    We eat very early. I do not know why. My input on the subject is not wanted.
