Happy Thanksgiving.

How are you celebrating today? If your'e like most folks, you've got certain traditions -- 82 percent of Americans say they have special ones this holiday.

According to MiLegacy , a new social network, 43 percent of Americans have food-related traditions, while another 39 percent have timeless family rituals.

For many (34 percent) hearing family updates and stories is their favorite part while 63 percent say simply seeing family is enough.

But with that comes a fair dose of dysfunction along with the cranberries and sweet potatoes.

To that end,Twitter has a new hashtag, #WeirdThanksgivingTraditions which began gaining traction last week when  Rock 106.1, Sa avannah, GA radio station, chose the tag for a weekly challenge.

It immediately went viral, sparking over 2,000 posts.

So, tell us, Daily Voice readers, your anecdotes of the good, bad and ugly in our Comments or on Facebook come Turkey Day. or, just join the crowd and Tweet about it.
