It's all about the cooking on thank-the-turkey day. Now, about that gravy …

To be thankful
Take a minute -- OK maybe five -- to consider the blessings that surround you.

Family at the holidays
Before the homemade chow, there's the meet-and-greet with the relatives standing by Grandma's fireplace. Some conversation starters.

Giving to the merchants
After all the holiday leftovers have been subdivided, it's time for some tactical planning. Now, where are the sale fliers with store layouts?

Thanksgiving table

Thanksgiving entertainment
Thanksgiving is more than just turkey. Some of the trimmings include old flicks, trivia quizzes and, of course, parades. Did someone say "Miracle on 34th Street"

History of Thanksgiving
A survival guide wouldn't be complete without a recap of how all this Thanksgiving stuff got started.
