We didn't discuss Plymouth Rock.
We didn't carve a turkey.
We ate pizza.
Because who knows if the pilgrims really ate turkey, and stuffing, and pumpkin pie.
I'm 99% sure green bean casserole was not involved in the first Thanksgiving.
See, when you're married (and your siblings are married) you get the experience the joy of split holidays.
It's impossible for everyone and their in-laws, and their siblings' in-laws, and their in-laws' in-laws, to celebrate in one place at one time (and survive). Kidding. But seriously, it's not possible.
So every other year my side of the family celebrates together on a day that is not the 4th Thursday in November.
Usually we have our "traditional" meal.
This year, we stepped outside the box.
It was awesome.
