What Time Is Thanksgiving Dinner?

That's the question for you, readers. Are you the family who eats your meal at 11 a.m., leaving plenty of time for napping and football game watching afterward? Or are you the family who has a traditional dinner at 6 p.m., after a day spent watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade and visiting various other family members' homes?

Better yet, are you the folks who go out for Thanksgiving and let someone else do the cooking and the dishes? Do you forgo Thanksgiving entirely to help out at an area soup kitchen or perform other volunteer work? Or are you those ultimate non-traditionalists who do something like Thanksgiving breakfast with turkey sausage and cornbread muffins, then eat at an Indian restaurant for dinner?

What do you do with your leftovers? Are there any leftovers? Do you have any Thanksgiving traditions that extend beyond the meal itself, like making the first batch of Christmas tamales the day after Thanksgiving or making a super-early, carb-loaded breakfast for braving the stores on Black Friday?

Whatever your Thanksgiving plans this year, we want to hear them. Let us have it in the comments section below.
