What Was the Highlight of Your Thanksgiving or Hanukkah?

Did you marvel at your first perfectly-roasted turkey or ham, or did you try out an unconventional menu? Did you enjoy spending time with a child, parent or other relative that you hadn't seen in years? Did you hit the malls for a bargain, or did you have to work (and maybe actually didn't mind)? Share what the highlight was of your Thanksgiving or Hanukkah. Feel free to post a photo.

Perhaps my 3-hours-long, post-meal nap? That's tied with the pre-meal walk I took with my dogs.

The highlight would have to be spending time with my husband, my 3-month-old granddaughter, my son and his wife, and my daughter. I was able to avoid the Black Friday mania, and even though I attempted to participate in Small Business Saturday, few stores were open in our area. It's time to take the holiday away from the commercial interests and return the focus to family.

We are a military family thus our families are not always near. Instead our friends become our family. We made a big dinner with some traditional dishes and a lot of Puertorrican dishes as well. The turkey and pumpkin pie sat happily next to guineitos en escabeche and arroz con dulce. We had a great time 🙂

The highlight of ALL my holidays at this stage in my life is still being around to have all my children, save one, who is a workaholic there to celebrate altogether. Even though the tables have turned and I am not solely cooking the meal however; the younger generation has taken over with supervision from the elder and that person is ME. The children and their families come over to share the holidays at my house since I am mother and grandmother, no great grands thank, God!!!and we have an all around good time. I tell them about the good old times and they fill me in on the new slang words and what they mean!! In my eyes this the ways holidays should be shared and passed on.

This is my first Thanks Giving in US. I enjoyed the feast at a friends place, a live turkey being brought and roasted. I am a veggie...but I did enjoy the gathering and seeing the turkey and the wine being a part of everyone platter.
I did a lot pf purchasing at NYC and Macy's of course....
