Thanksgiving Attire

Does anyone get dressed up like at Christmas dinner? Or is it more of a casual thing

Would love to be able to sit on the couch for a few days, get a good book, and do NOTHING!

Two words in our house: STRETCHY PANTS

LOL, not for me this year, but yeah, people eat 'til they about bust in our house. Then a nice long walk with the dog and kids to try to get it all digested!

Slacks and a sweater -- kind of a "business casual".

We don't really dress up for either holiday. Usually just jeans and a nice top. Some of my cousins dress up, but most of us dress pretty casual....noone wears sweats or anything like that though.

Nope, jeans are the normal attire for our family holidays--Thanksgiving AND Christmas meals.

Well, actually, Christmas dinner is usually just DH, DD, and I so sometimes we stay in pajamas all day.

I do a turkey trot in the morning and then go right to grandma's. I shower there and then put on the wind pants and shirt I usually wear over my running stuff on the way to the run. We are a pretty laid back family, no one cares what anyone else wears.

fully dressed up for both holidays. We like it, it makes us feel more special. But definitely, to each his own. It works for our family.

We've always gone dressy casual as well. Generally a nice sweater and skirt on the girls and button down shirts and slacks on the boys.

We go more formal for Christmas Eve (when we do church and dinner out) with jackets and ties on the boys and dressier skirts and tops or dresses on the girls. Christmas Day we stay in jammies all day unless the weather provides a chance to put on teh snow clothes and play.

Jeans and tees on both Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. We dress up - dresses for the women, suits for the men on Christmas Eve. We go to mass and then back to BIL's house for dinner and exhanging presents.

Nice casual for us. I'm in it for the meal more than anything. We have some extra company this year so I guess I'll wear nice shorts and a collared shirt.

We'll be in New York for Christmas this year so I'm going with whatever is warm (no shorts).
Now also a proud great-grandfather of identical twin boys!

We go dressy casual with nice pants (no skirts because it is usually cold) and sweaters/nice tops.
