Poll Results: Thanksgiving Holiday

We were curious how our readers and viewers felt about Thanksgiving this year. So we came up with a few questions to get a feel for how people choose to celebrate the holiday.

We also wanted to know, given the struggling economy, if the overall mood of the holiday would be any different this year. Do we have more to be thankful for, or less? Have our priorities changed in any way?

Here are the results.
