Between planning an unforgettable Thanksgiving menu and making sure we don't gobble away healthy eating priorities, anxiety can overwhelm excitement for the upcoming long weekend. Once Thursday comes, nosy questions about our personal or professional lives will make us squirm, while some of us will do our best to impress potential in-laws. If you're meeting the parents, check out this list of what they're looking for and don't forget to bring a gift! And when limited time or money means you can't make it home for Thanksgiving you're bound to feel bummed, even if you're missing the possible drama.
Of course, once Thanksgiving's over, it's time to shop and plan for Christmas! The song says it's the most wonderful time of the year, but what about the holidays makes you lose sleep during long Winter nights?
