    We’ll probably actually sit down between 2 and 3 to eat. I totally understand your point though!!

    I’m surprised so many people have it so early.  5:30 would be quite early, usually it’s around 7.

    We usually sit down sometime between 1 and 3pm.  Then we watch football, take a nap, and eat leftovers for dinner.

    I think we are eating at 4pm. We’re going to my FI’s parents.

    We go to two meals. My side has lunch at noon, and his side has dinner at 5. So much food…

    SO’s grandma hosts Thanksgiving dinner but she has everyone eat at noon! Ugh, 12 pm is way too early to eat such a big meal. I wish she’d push the time back to at 2, although 5 would be best. Gives you time to stuff yourself, recover, then polish off dessert.

    My family serves dinner between 2-4 pm, typically. FI’s family serves a little later, usually after 4 pm.

    i never realized that many have Thanksgiving dinner so early. We usually sit down around 5 or 6ish. Same with Christmas.

    @BakerBee16:  Wow.  That’s super early.  We never start eating until around 8 PM.

    @BakerBee16:  I hate having it early. We’re hosting this year so we’ll have a light lunch and then dinner around 7!

    My mom’s family does the 3pm thing and it always bothered me a bit. Eating at 3pm means we all eat too much because no one ate a normal lunch! Then I’m hungry again around 9pm, which means I go to bed feeling full and gross.
