In my family Thanksgiving is a pretty informal affair, but that's due to the fact that I have a huge extended family—almost 65 people when everyone can make it. That means that we opt for paper or plastic plates instead of fine china and silver. But I know for many people Thanksgiving is like the Academy Awards of home entertaining with best table settings, serving pieces, and maybe even the crystal wine glasses.
What is it like in your home? Do you go formal or casual, and given the choice (if you're not the one making that decision) what would you prefer?
