What are your Thanksgiving plans at work?

You're around the people you work with more than your family. In fact, some of you may spend more time with these people working on the holidays and miss out on "traditional" celebrations with your family. We sometimes can become very creative when livening up the holidays spent at work with our "work families". What are some of the Thanksgiving plans you have for this week while at work?

It was always wonderful,we planned a menu,brought in food, or free meal at cafe but no one could pic up for anyone else,so we had to skip it ,too busy to go so far away.Great group until we got one that wasnt,would forget to bring her/his part of the meal....not good.Some nice families would bring a tray of home cooked meal or dessert.Miss those except when too short staffed to even eat ...ugh.

This year we all brought stuff. I brought the sides and dessert. 

It was nice and made the night go by faster. Times like that make me grateful to be at work on holidays.
