I appreciate the options of eating out on Thanksgiving, but can't imagine having it anywhere other than home.

checked out the prices off them.

at $36 to $65 per person, you're better off cooking at home, besides what are people getting lazy or something? That's part of the tradition family gathered around while the food is being prepared. That just goes to show you, Americans have lost all sense of holiday values. Hey let's go have Thanksgiving at Micky D's. So Sad ...

Isn't that the truth, besides, home cooked meal is the best, restaurant food can't hold a fork to it.

The US is a consumer driven, event driven, celebrity obsessed nation. Holidays are commercialized. The Blue Laws were changed back in the '70s. The almightty dollar rules. Eating out on a Holiday is not considered a big deal as it once was. This is the country we have become. When was the last time families sat down to dinner? Please don't tell me your family does, because for the most part AMericans don't eat as families anymore!

Well, you don't seem to be petrubed by what this country has become. Is it possible that you don't think it's a big deal because you are part of the younger generation that doesn't put any value on what was once a great nation?
You don't remember the Blue Laws which prohibited stores from being open on Sundays? I can't relax and have a beer. I am watching a country change before my eyes. I liked what the other guy said, "Go to McDonald's on Thanksgiving." That about says it all... Oh yea, and don't forget to run to the Malls on Friday to start your "Holiday" shopping. God forbid we say Christmas, we may offend non-Christians.

History guy, my fiance and I were discussing this very thing, and she pointed out to me that many young people today simply have NO IDEA how different things were in the very recent past.

They simply have no frame of reference. When older people talk about the way things were, they are ignored or dismissed as senile revisionists. Young people, raised in broken families on a steady diet of idiotic tv, violent video games and dumbed down books simply have NO conception of what they are missing.

I think many old people are darn glad to have lived when they did, and to have lived life the way that they did.

You are so right. Notice on this Board how the older posters are either dismissed or ignored when we point out how different things used to be. The major problem is, the entire marketing scheme of big business is geared to the 18-35 year olds. Therefore people like me are an after thought. It's not easy getting old.

Crisis: Before it's too late, take the bull by the horns and tell Granny that her plans have been changed. Have T-giving at your house with all those children and married grandchildren. Can't have the same family atmosphere at a restaurant than it can in your living, dining room and kitchen. Get some help from other influential members of the family in convincing everyone that this is the happier, more personal and gratifying way to go with a holiday that spells home everytime. Tell Granny you'll take her to a restaurant another time. Good luck and God Bless!
