Pie is one of the best things about Thanksgiving dinner.
But year after year, we all have the same kinds of pie: pumpkin and apple. This holiday season, spice things up by making a brand-new pie for dinner. Whether it’s a twist on an old classic or something completely new, you’ll get tons of compliments. It might even become your family’s new favorite dessert!

Thanksgiving may be a day to give thanks, but it is more widely celebrated as a day full of everyone’s favorite dishes.
And while most of your guests will eat themselves into a food coma with second and maybe even third helpings of turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing, some guests may not be able to experience food-induced nirvana because of dietary restrictions.

So why not go the extra mile to ensure everyone has a happy and fulfilling Thanksgiving by cooking up some of these 22 meat-free dishes that are sure to make your vegetarian guests hungry for more?
I’m not even a vegetarian and I’m so excited to make a bunch of these for my family’s feast! Are you a vegetarian who has trouble on Thanksgiving? Will you make any of these for yourself or your friends?
My dad is always the last person left on my Christmas shopping list. He’s not particularly hard to shop for, but what could possibly be special enough for the man who’s given me everything?
There are always the standard presents, like ties and coffee mugs, but sometimes they just don’t cut it. Most dads have reached an age where they no longer care much about material items. What they really treasure is the precious time that they get to spend with their family.
The daughter in the video below hadn’t been able to spend Christmas with her dad in 25 years. One year when the big day rolled around, she did everything in her power to change that.
This is a gift he’ll never, ever forget.

When you think about it, New Year’s Eve is kind of a bizarre holiday. What better way to celebrate the coming of the new year than by waiting for a light-up ball to drop, macking on each other, and drinking weird carbonated wine from France, right?
But there are some New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day celebrations out there that make those rituals sound normal. Take these, for example.
