How do you and your family celebrate Thanksgiving?
A lot seems to depend on the number of people involved, and their location.
Judy Harwell of Collinsville said when she, her brother and two sisters bring their families together, there were usually 20 or more people at the dinner table.
The family does a luncheon because several members are involved in deer hunting during the early morning and late afternoon hours.
Gayden Werger, meanwhile, is usually on the road during Thanksgiving, visiting her grown children who live in Greenwood and Knoxville, Tenn.
Renee Weier said there will 30 guests gathered at her daughter's house in Marion.
The guests will visit most of the afternoon, and then enjoy a little family tradition.
Leftovers
It might not be a problem in some homes, but what to do with the leftovers is sometimes a big question following a Thanksgiving feast. Here are some recipes you might want to try.
