Thanksgiving officially marks the start of the holiday season in the U.S. and for many it's a chance to visit family and stuff themselves with abundant food – preferably Turkey and gravy.

Heck, even I find it a good excuse to have a nice dinner back home in Ecuador (not that I need an excuse when it comes to delicious food, of course).

I don't get to enjoy a couple of days off work, though. But for those of you who are, tell us about your plans for the long weekend. Taking a short trip? Spending it inside playing your backlog of games? Eating Thanksgiving leftovers? Doing some holiday shopping? Let's hear it.
