"I love to create very traditional meals—but all vegetarian. I make these yummy corn bread muffins and stuffing: You just create more delicious things and nobody notices that there isn't a turkey"
—ALICIA SILVERSTONE

"For the last couple of years we've been in Las Vegas, and all our families and our crew's families get together. It's fun because you get to see different Thanksgivings. It's cool to see cultures come together"
—LANCE BASS

"One childhood tradition was we always had sauerkraut. Turkey and mashed potatoes just didn't seem right without it mixed in."
—DENNIS FRANZ

"After dinner everyone falls asleep. We have these strange pictures of us taken over the years—passed out."
—LAUREN HOLLY

"We have the normal turkey and stuffing, but we also have Korean food mixed in. It makes it really special."
—JOHN CHO

"My mom dropped the turkey one Thanksgiving. It was sad. We all had to do so much work to keep her from crying, but it wasn't a big deal for me. I was like, 'See, if you were a vegetarian...' "
NATALIE PORTMAN

"My mom will probably kill me for saying this, but a few years ago the turkey froze. She puts it on the porch the night before to keep it cold—we live in Ohio. But it froze, so it took longer to cook and it threw everything else off. It wasn't a good year for her"
KATIE HOLMES

"Thanksgiving is always a family reunion. Every year we eat, talk and sing. Getting together is a family concert."
—BRAIN McKNIGHT

"When I cook, you eat whenever the food is finished. Last year I cooked the turkey through the night and it was done at 8 in the morning, so everybody had to get up and eat."
—RAVEN-SYMONE

"Eating too much turkey, falling asleep on the couch with the television on in the background: That's everybody's tradition."
—TED ALLEN
