    My family goes all out for EVERY holiday. And we like to celebrate pretty much any holiday we can think of (we gave Valentine’s Day presents growing up, we celebrate American and Canadian Thanksgiving, make Hot Cross Buns for Holy Week, have a giant 4th of July party every year, and I’ll bet money there’s pie for pi day at my parent’s house and my brother’s tonight). When we were registering for wedding gifts my husband was perplexed when we’d ever use china, and I rattled off a dozens of occasions my family uses ours for. My husband’s family is clearly a bit more subdued.

    I’m glad to hear we’re not the only ones who have holiday meals at unexpected times of the year.

    I’m so sorry you’re not feeling well. Hopefully the doctor will be able to help. Hang in there!

      My family usually has the celebration on the actual holiday but I don’t mind either way honestly.

    I love that you guys had Thanksgiving Dinner in March! What a cool idea. We tend to go pretty overboard with holidays, but my family is pretty small so it doesn’t get too too out of control. For Thanksgiving this year, even though there was only 12 of us, my sister made 3 pies!! Salted caramel apple (OMG) chocolate crusted pumpkin pie, and banana cream. Heaven.

    What fun to have Thanksgiving in March! Our family does the holiday meals up. We all get together and everyone brings something. John and I are the big cooks of the family as we don’t stress or anything – so I love hosting. My mother gets a little stressed out when she hosts.

    We even celebrate the ‘smaller’ holidays, like our Mardi Gras dinner. And we usually cook something Irish for St Patty’s day, although we don’t often get together for that holiday.

      I love hosting too. I want to host 2011 Thanksgiving too. I think I can do it!
