Thanksgiving - my mother buys already prepared turkey and serves a regular sized meal for once.

That's it.

Family feast topic

Only on holidays and Sundays did my childhood family eat well. Oh, and when someone came to visit, so I used to like planned visitors. Sunday was always a roast beef with gravy.

Christmas, New Years, Easter and Thanksgiving are all turkey meals. But the Festive pudding was always welcome! :D
