Thanksgiving is a time for family. No one should have to sit alone in their house and eat dinner by themselves, especially if they are a kid. There are lots of things you could do on Thanksgiving as a family. However sitting by yourself eating a meal made in the microwave is not an ideal way to spend Thanksgiving. Some people feel it is and that’s ok if it’s really what you want. I don’t want any of my Thanksgivings like that; I like them the traditional way.
