In one of my favorite movies/plays, Fiddler on the Roof, there is much to do about Tradition. Tevye is frantic with concern over the girls, his lovely girls, flaunting with tradition and changing the world. Fortunately, Tevye has a good wife and loves his daughters so moves with the times, eventually.
This cannot always be said for Thanksgiving or Christmas Dinner.
Have you ever known anyone melt down due to no cranberry, jellied or whole, wasn't on the table? Or perhaps seen the cold shoulder when ham or duck was served rather than turkey? If you haven't, you may be one of only a few.
But perhaps you are on the other side of the coin! Mom or Dad always worked the holidays and all your family was really on the other side of the world so Thanksgiving meals were never more than a turkey breast baked earlier in the week with a few canned vegetables warmed when everybody was finally home.
AND NOW YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO HAVE THE INLAWS OVER FOR THANKSGIVING!!!
