I guess this is one holiday that I really don't enjoy. First of all, I was born on Thanksgiving day, so it means I am another year older.
Secondly, I no longer have any family, so it is just the two of us together on thanksgiving day and I don't like to cook. There are restaurants open here for lunch, but that is all.
so, most of the time, my dh goes to work.

    I understand how you feel. All the holidays used to be really special and all our family got together for a huge meal. Now I'm pretty much all by myself and holidays don't have much meaning to them.

    The year you were born, Thanksgiving HAPPENED to be that day. It is impossible for your birthday to fall on Thanksgiving every year, as the date changes.

    Sorry, I had a former co-worker who went on and on about being a Thanksgiving baby and her birthday could have NEVER fallen on (a) Thanksgiving to begin with. @@

    I love Thanksgiving more and more each year due to the fact that I enjoy the 4-day weekend more and more each year. LOL Plus all the yummy food!!!

    Oh, I never said that my birthday was on Thanksgiving every year. However, I was born on Thanksgiving day and last year my birthday was on thanksgiving day. This year,it is the day after.
    But we always met with my mother and MIL and had a big dinner and celebrated my birthday on Thanksgiving day every year. Now, we are alone.

    I understand- my grandmother died the week of Thanksgiving in 1988, when I was a Freshman at college, so its never been the same, now daddy just passed on November 1st, so its sad, so we will do something different this year- we will go on a minitrip to somewhere- don't know yet- haven't had time to plan that far yet.

    Bake a turkey breast, make some potatoes and gravy, even if it is instant, and buy a pumpkin pie.
    Have a nice candle light dinner with your hard-working husband, and play some nice music.
    You can still make it a special day with very little effort.
    My DH and I got married the day before Thanksgiving, and since we host the large family gatherings, our anniversary gets lost in the chaos. I don't mind though, we choose a weekend in November and go to a bed and breakfast inn to celebrate.
