I spent Thanksgiving this year doing something just a little bit different. My church puts on a big Thanksgiving spectacular called "Operation Turkey Sandwich." This is my third year participating. The theory behind it is that many people have to work on the holiday and are not able to be with their own families, or they might not have families to spend the holiday with, and could use a little kindness on a sometimes lonely day. We make sack lunches that consist of turkey sandwiches, stuffing muffins and pumpkin cookies. Our church made and distributed 1,045 lunches to people working at 7-11's/other gas stations, hospitals, police stations, fire departments, etc. It was a good time. There was even a spontaneous dance party in the middle of the sandwich-crafting.
