Avoid it!! 🙂 But if you must go, Definitely wear comfortable shoes and dress in layers — you might be cold or hot depending on where the line is… If you are a caffeine addict, bring your own thermos.
We draw names on my side and are doing handmade gifts for a lot of people on our list this year. How about going to see a movie? Or taking the time to donate blood at your local red cross. (I donated this morning and our red cross is open on Thanksgiving day and the gal was telling me that there is a family of about 30 people that comes to donate every Thanksgiving day – I heard that the media might be there this year). Also have heard of people cleaning out their house/closet of extra when everyone else is stocking up, they are purging and donating to charity…
