CAN YOU PLEASE PASS THE GRAVY?
Now that Thanksgiving is right around the corner you must think about your plans. For one, there is the traditional idea of going home to your family where your aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents come and sit around the table and say what they are thankful for. Next, you have the choice to go home with your friend and spend the holiday with their family. Finally there are those who don't like to make a big deal of the holiday- some people might prefer a Big Mac to a piece of gravy-soaked turkey. With so many different plans to choose from it could make you wonder - where is everybody going for the Thanksgiving break?
