    I'm a traditional kind of guy, so I love it all; the decorations, the food, the company, and even simply the act of getting together and enjoying a nice meal and each others company. Same goes for Christmas and it's typical traditions.

    It's a tie between family and food, though I haven't really had a traditional sit-down Thanksgiving family dinner in a while. I spent last thanksgiving in Singapore, and I can't remember the year before that.

    The annual massacre of turkeys ;) 

    On a more serious note, I enjoy the joy and goodwill amongst our extended family.We're already a tight-knit community and Thanksgiving just amplifies the love 10 times over.

    Oh and my uncle's cooking. I love that too.

    The food is my favorite, but I like all the other traditions my family does as well such as watching the Macy's parade on TV, watching the majority of the football games, and shooting a few of our guns in.

    Food, and the fact that it kind of starts out the Christmas season (for me, anyway). And the break, of course.

    used to be a big family event, so I have a lot of great memories from years past. Now it's mostly a day to accomplish as little as possible.

    The fact that it's something that I exclusively share with my American family. My English family (obviously) never did anything for thanksgiving, so it's nice that I have this 'new' tradition with them.

    Also Turkey.
