The turkey is defrosted, the cranberry sauce is unmolded from the can and the pies are cooling — now what are you supposed to do? Spend time with your family? God forbid.
Here's something to be thankful for: Your TV and the cable channels housed within. Programmers know that you'd rather hang out with your fictitious friends than your blood relations (and that your employers have given you extra time off to subject you to their company even longer), so they've come through in the pinch, bearing gifts such as "Scott Pilgrim," "The Shining" and "The Godfather."
Another thing you can give thanks for before the tryptophan kicks in and you fall into a couch coma, remote in hand: The Credits has compiled a list of movies on all weekend, so you can plan to spend as little time talking with your face as possible, and more time stuffing it with leftovers. »
