Christmas Ball 1 Thanksgiving: Lunch or Dinner?

So the big burning question: When do you have your Thanksgiving meal? Lunch or Dinner?
We do lunch with leftovers for dinner.

We usually eat around 3pm, mid-afternoon and that is one big filling meal and maybe go back for a snack later in the evening.

We have breakfast with DH's family around 9:00 a.m. We have dinner with my family around 5:00 p.m. DD will have a snack between the two meals. I enjoy it this way because the family celebrations can last longer & we're not running from town to town. It's about 30 minutes drive between our parent's homes via the interstate.

Growing up we had our Thanksgiving meal at lunch time around 1. I never like eating that early.

Now that I host Thanksgiving we eat around 4 which is perfect for us. I will make a big breakfest and then around noon I will place out trays of fruit and veggies, cheese & crakers and pepperoni bread that everyone can snack on.

We usually eat mid-late afternoon/early evening, could be 4pm, or could be closer to 6 or 7. It really depends on how early I get started, and get everything done.
