What are some good ideas for a by-yourself Thanksgiving Day?
There's a month til Thanksgiving, I bet in that time you will be invited to spend the holiday with a friend or family there in your college town. People from church always invite stranded college students over.
If not, you can volunteer at a soup kitchen or homeless shelter. But the best thing would be to find other people like yourself who are alone, and get together for a potluck meal. You could be the one to organize it.

Not on it.

Do people line up for KMART Thanksgiving Day sale that starts at 7am?
You better believe it! I like to go to the day after Thanksgiving sales too. A group of us ladies gets up at 4:30 a.m. and goes to another ladies house for coffee and rolls and we look thru the ads and schedule where we will go when depending on when different stores open and we have a large vehicle we fill up a couple of times and have to have one ladies husband come and unload it and take it home so we can keep shopping without having to return home. We spend about 16 or 17 hours on the road between our town and several towns close to us.
how long does it take for the macy's thanksgiving day parade balloons take to inflate?
The other answerer is quite correct. It all depends upon the total cubic footage that each individual balloon holds.
Then, you have to consider that these "Character balloons" are not composed of one, single "envelope." They have different sections (arms, legs, head, etc.) which are inflated separately. The ground crew also must deal with any adverse weather conditions, in particular, wind, in securing the balloons to the ground overnight and transporting them to the parade site the next day.
From start (unloading, laying out, checking over each piece), through inflation, to the end (securing), it can vary from a couple of hours to several hours.

why do americans and canadians celebrate thanksgiving day in different days?
Thanksgiving is celebrated differently due to the different customs. Canadas thanksgiving didnt start like america's. Thanksgiving was always around since the first thanksgiving just never an official holiday like it is now. And yes. The american pilgrims came to america and made friends with the natives. Promising health and prosperity to each other. Then about 100+ years later they stole their land, killed them, some enslaved, and the survivers where forced to live on reservations which was small area of land set aside for the natives.

Ration out your food consumption. Use actual serving sizes, not just until your plate is full. Start jogging everywhere you go. Whether its up the street of simply to the mail box. But dont starve yourself. Not eating enough will make you gain weight, not lose. And cut of desserts. Give yourself one dessert night a week. And a really good thing to do is eat more veggies and less meat.

What do you think about Sears being open on Thanksgiving day?
I hate it, I remember when I was a kid, that some places were not even open on Sundays. I understand that some people like it because they can make extra money but, if I was the owner of the store it would be closed at noon on Christmas Eve and all day on Christmas, and closed on Thanksgiving. I do not shop on holidays those are reserved for my family and friends.

What is traffic like in Chicago on Thanksgiving Day?
If you can avoid driving on Thanksgiving Day DO IT!! If you can't, stay off the interstates. If you can't do THAT, bring a good book on tape or something similar and try to travel super early or extremely late. It took me over an hour to 2 miles last time I made the mistake of driving on Thanksgiving Day. The traffic is generally horrendous. Best of luck
Well, usually its spent at my parents house with my family (or at least most of them). Last year it was only my parents, my husband and I with our two kids and my brother. The year before both my sisters were there.
This year, I think my husband and I are going to have a small thanksgiving at home alone with the kids.
I get up early, watch the parade with the kids (or bits and pieces of it), start preparing what needs cooked, cook our thanksgiving meal, eat, and then lounge around in comfy clothes for the rest of the evening.

Where can my boyfriend and I take an overnight trip to on Thanksgiving day?
When I first moved here I went to Santa Barbara with my parents on Thanksgiving. It was nice because everything was empty. There were some restaurants open and, of course, the bars were open. People like to get away from their family on holidays it seems. The mission in Santa Barbara was open and completely empty of people except for a homeless man that followed me around trying to show me lingerie ad pics of women. My parents still think that is funny....
The weather was gorgeous and the drive was nice because the roads were empty. Most hotel restaurants will be open on Thanksgiving.
