Thanksgiving is almost here. Tell us what you’re thankful for in the comments.

That's your annual turkey consumption, according to U.S. Census
In the fall of 1621, the Pilgrims, early settlers of Plymouth Colony, held a three-day feast to celebrate a bountiful harvest, an event many regard as the nation’s first Thanksgiving. Today, we're still feasting. Here are some facts about the holiday from the U.S. Census Bureau. 13.3 pounds The quantity of turkey consumed by the typical American in 2009, with no doubt a hearty helping devoured at Thanksgiving time. Per capita sweet potato consumption was 5.3 pounds. 248 million The number of turkeys expected to be raised in the United States in 2011. That’s up 2 percent from the number raised during 2010. The turkeys produced in 2010 together weighed 7.11 billion pounds and were valued at $ 4.37 billion. 1.1 billion pounds Total …

We want to know what Thanksgiving traditions your family has created.
Turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, the counting of blessings, retelling the story of the Mayflower’s voyage, awkward hugs from family members you only see in the latter part of the year…yep, Thanksgiving is filled with traditions. Despite these seemingly national Turkey Day trends, some families carve out their own independent rituals. One family I know always participates in the nearest charity walk, combining exercise and giving back. Another family I know replaces turkey with tofu, also giving each member a veggie dish to be the chef of (I am assuming the 2-year-old is exempt). Others Skype with far flung relatives in order to create that family feeling. We at Patch want to know: what are your unique Thanksgiving traditions? Are you …
