Friday Night Thanksgiving?

My family normally goes all out for Thanksgiving- turkey, stuffing, yams, pumpkin pie, and so on- on Thanksgiving, with the leftovers being the Friday night meal.

My wife, on the other hand, points out (not unreasonably) that cooking a meal of that complexity is a lot of work and that it 'isn't kovod Shabbos' to have leftovers for the Friday night meal. Naturally, she does not want to cook one big dinner for Thanksgiving and one for Friday night. As a compromise, she is willing to have the turkey and et cetera on Friday night and call that Thanksgiving.

Asking around, I find to my suprise that this seems to be not uncommon. It seems that quite a few of our crowd eat turkey on the Friday night after Thanksgiving.

What I want to know is: how many here have a turkey dinner? Of those who do, how many have it on Thursday and how many have it on Friday?
