With Thanksgiving taking place tomorrow, it's becoming almost impossible to contain all our turkey-lovin' excitement. Honestly, is there anything better than boatloads of pumpkin pie and stuffing ourselves silly and spending time with our crazy families? No way!

Sure the holiday requires tons of prep, but that's one of the best parts. We're talking about buying out half the grocery store, making cookies with grandma and readying ourselves for the few nutcases we'll encounter at dinner. We thought the majority of people follow similar readying tactics, but it turns out a lot of them use alternative preparation methods when it comes to the greatest American holiday. They scare children with an entire raw turkey, for example.

So how are people really preparing for Thanksgiving?
