We load up, head to my DH's company's condo at the beach and spend the extended weekend there. We leave on Wednesday night, come home Sunday, spend Friday hitting the black Friday sales at the SanDestin Outlets and the rest of the time we just relax and do whatever the kids want to do.
We also travel and vacation Christmas through New Years.
We are very traditional. We get up and have home-made cinnamon rolls for breakfast and watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Then we head over to my mom's for a late lunch. My step-dad deep fries the turkey. We have all the usual fixings (dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, etc etc) and watch football! If its not too colds out, the kids go out and play and the adults sit and finalize any Christmas plans (whose bringing what, etc.)
