For The Love Of God and Turkey On Thanksgiving Day- DO NOT confuse the two- EVER!!!!!
Families have went to Feud over this subject because new in-laws have confused the two or ones who know better decided to arbitrarily "try something different". Oh No...You have decades old traditions and you might want to try something new- but you have to do it along with the traditional thing, not INSTEAD OF!
Oh My Lord- the Pain!!! The Pain!!!!
