Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
What is your Thanksgiving and Black Friday Traditions?
Mine is that we typically have Thanksgiving Dinner with my wife's family. I usually start the morning helping my wife prep for dinner and prepare the Turkey. We always watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade and then right after that, we watch Miracle on 34th Street (1947)... later on we will watch some football, the Wizard of Oz and hopefully another Christmas movie.
Black Friday, I stay home, eat leftovers all day, make a fire in the fireplace and watch Christmas movies....
The Bell Still Rings for me,
as it does for all who truly Believe!

Butter streusel coffee cake for breakfast, first of all. Then I HAVE to watch the Macy's parade. Mr. has no interest in it, but I must see it!
Just the two of us have Thanksgiving dinner in the afternoon. (We get together with the family on Christmas, but enjoy a small, quiet Thanksgiving at home.) We get turkey and sides from Boston Market, and make our own stuffing and brown 'n' serve rolls (must have them!). We always listen to one particular old-time radio show: it's a 1946 Jimmy Durante-Garry Moore show where they do a musical Thanksgiving sketch about John Alden and Priscilla Mullins. Later in the evening, we kick off the Christmas season by screening a kinescope of a 1956 Lawrence Welk broadcast that features Christmas music.
Black Friday is my day to stay at home away from the crowds and traffic, wrapping gifts and putting together gift packages to mail out, while listening to Christmas music and old-time radio shows.
On Thanksgiving we have dinner with my husband's family mid afternoon. I bake the pies, cakes md muffons, (which is what I'm doing right now) and the kids' favorite mac n cheese. Then we head back home and I watch a Christmas movie.
On Black Friday I avoid all shopping and travel like the plague, watch movies and have left overs. We usually have a 2nd Thanksgiving dinner with my parents on Saturday. Two completely different meals so it's not overkill. LOL His family is from the deep south and mine is from the northeast so we have very different ideas of Thanksgiving dinner.

Like we did last year, my husband and I cooked the turkey and stuffing on Wed. I made the gravy too, this way, we're not as rushed Thanksgiving. We had a nice breakfast, and watched the parade. When it was time, I made the vegetable, dinner rolls, and set up relish tray, then heated up turkey, stuffing and gravy. After our dinner was settled, we had pie for dessert.
This morning, I took down Thanksgiving decorations then we got to work putting up Christmas. I've been going all day, and have finally settled down. I got most of my decorations up. The tree is up, but not decorated yet. The ornaments will go on tomorrow. I have more decorating to do too. While I was decorating inside, my husband decorated outside. it all looks so beautiful, and has really put us in the Christmas spirit.

Hi everyone! I don't post as often as I should, but pop in from time to time. My Thanksgiving/Black Friday tradition begins by turning on the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade while I play on Facebook and have a cup of coffee. Then I start whatever side dishes I will bring to Thanksgiving dinner at my grandparents, usually green bean casserole and baked mac & cheese. Then it's off to the grandparents house for the big dinner. When I get home that evening, I put away all the fall decorations, and start getting the apartment ready for the Christmas decorations, by cleaning and moving stuff around, putting away knick knacks that will have to be put away to make room. Then I put my bedroom tree up and decorate it. Black Friday is entirely devoted to decorating for Christmas!
