Long ago we had fish sticks to go with our Thanksgiving dinner, but my sister who was about 7-8 years old at the time thought she was eating "fish dicks!" and said, "they where good!".

Great story Nathan, it just shows you don't have to have a lot of things to be happy & grateful. Happy Thanksgiving, my favorite memory was the one year I made it to the NYC Thanksgiving Day parade. I was inside & had a great 2nd story view, for which I was truly grateful- it's always freezing down there during the parade!

The first year we lived in Paris in 1989 (where there is no Thanksgiving Day), one of my best friends came to visit for a week and we invited a dozen ex-pat Americans to a traditional Thanksgiving Day dinner... the guests included Katherine and Bob Altman (the Hollywood directore). She was a friend of mine and the Altman's were in Paris because he was working on a film there.

What a wonderful childhood memory and it sounds like everyone had a special day - you can be poor and not know you are, because you are happy! - thanks for sharing this favorite memory Nathan Gesner.  For me, it's a very current memory, and has been on-going for the last 5 years.  We do a Friendsgiving over Thanksgiving, since we do not have relatives where we live (meaning not in the same state).  Everyone is involved and brings something, and everyone that joins us is a widow or widower, who also doesn't have family in the same state.  It's a time I will always remember, and every year we do not always have the same people . . .

Last year. A lovely dinner at my friend house. Food ( organic, gluten free, I cooked most of it, including a turkey I marinaded for 3 days)  was delicious, the company of friends and family was inspiring, and the Malibu views were magnificent.

Thanksgivings with my cousins when we were little... We'd all lay on the livingroom floor after dinner and watch tv.  We got SO excited when the first Christmas commercial came on.  Now we've seen them since July.....!

That's a fun memory. I can't say I have anything in particular. Each Thanksgiving is a little different and special. I suppose the best memories are with all of our immediate family, and it's been a little while.
