Haha, I'm so not traditional. I've stuffed many a turkey but I've also made tamales, gourmet pizza, antipasto, prime rib and cioppino. Are the drinks the same? That's the real question

Karen,

Our family had to have a meat dish for my father in law who did not like turkey.  We are on our own this year.  We are home for the first time in many years.  We are going to take a long walk on the beach and grill lobsters for dinner.  No major cooking, and no fuss.  A

Growing up it was a tradition with my maternal grandparents as my others lived out of town. 

For me, I would rather just serve at a local soup kitchen to help those who will really appreciate it. I think so many Americans take what we have for granted, but those in true need seem truly grateful when they can get a hot meal a few times a year.

I go to a buffet each year.  Usually change up the restaurant though.  This year we're going to an Italian restaurant that has an Italian buffet, plus the turkey stuff, AND BAR-B-QUE!  I'm a happy camper if I get BBQ ribs on turkey day.  Forget the turkey, I had that two nights ago.

No, as I celebrate it with different sides of my family or even with friends from year to year, it's most always different.

I live really razor close to the New Brunswick Canadian border. And if you don't secure your Tom Turkey early, they are all heading across the border into the land of the red maple leaf. It will mean ham or other meat or a vegetarian Thanksgiving for you this holiday.

No, we switch it up. It depends on who will be around and whose house we will be at. This year is turkey, but we've done duck, fish, lamb, whatever. A few times we smoked the turkey, other times we put it in the oven. The sides change as well!

Oh, almost forgot that you asked a question (your last sentence was so good.)

We have only mixed it up once. We went to buy the turkey at 6 pm (the night before) and found that none of the stores had any available. Luckily, a colleague had sent us a box of Omaha Steaks and twice baked mashed potatoes. I will always have fond memories of that guy- he saved our holiday.

I'm the cook and Hostess so they eat what I decide to create and I switch it up.  This year I actually went traditional to everyones surprise!  I don't like turkey myself and when I do prepare it is usually brined or fried or spatchcocked or rolled or even one year as a Turkey Wellington.  I like the other birds and have served them all.  Life is too short to stick to the same old same old. :)

One side of the family celebrates on the Saturday after the holiday.  I was cooking, so I thought everyone would be sick of turkey, so I did an italian dinner with lasagna, garlic bread, italian beef, etc.,  I learned from mistake when everyone told me they didn't get leftovers from their turkey day and were looking forward to having turkey again.
