I am talking about the vast number of ways people celebrate a holiday which has one of the shakiest origin stories ever…in ways that may or may not actually be putting their lives in immediate danger.

And more to the point…In Which Thanksgiving Traditions do YOU partake, that could be considered “Outside the Norm,” (especially since Norm was not invited this year)?
