Thanksgiving competes with Halloween for holiday complexity

Well, if you enjoyed my story of three Halloween parties in one night, you'll positively swoon to the story of four Thanksgivings! Yes, my girlfriend and I, the couple who can't say "no," are back and this time we're taking it on the road.

First we headed west to suburban Pennsylvania to have appetizers and cocktails with her mom's family. Then she headed south to have dinner with her dad's family in Maryland, while I cunningly darted east to eat with mine in New Jersey. And then we were back together again for a fantastic Thanksgiving party with friends up in northern Philadelphia on saturday. I made up a big delicious batch of apple-and-sausage stuffing for that last one and it was very well received.
