How many for Thanksgiving?

KaimukiMan | Nov 16, 2012 05:20 AM

When I was young Thanksgiving was usually 5 people, sometimes 7 depending on which grandparents showed up. Now its usually at my brother's house, depending on which in-laws show up it can be as small as 8 or as many as 25, but usually about 12-15 people. On years I can't get to the mainland I have a group of friends that I celebrate with, usually about 8 - 12 people.

Generally more people = more food, often a geometric increase - when you have 20 people cooking for 20 people....
