Or, as I often know it, the Day I Work While My Family Does Thanksgiving -- but bear in mind that every other member of the family has children and we're at a point in the generational cycle where the kids are all at diapers-through-grade-school ages, so the holidays are built around them. Which I think is as it should be. I'm especially pleased their parents don't try visiting all of their extended families in one day; that's no fun even for adults.
For me and Tam, the day started with a couple of mashed-potato pancakes and a slice of delicious applewood-smoked bacon. I added a fried egg. There may better breakfasts, but none of them are very much better. I even had a small glass of eggnog!
