I’ve always had mine as an evening meal (around 6:30), but I know a lot of people serve theirs quite early.

We go to my Dad’s (87) at noon and my mother in law’s at 6pm. I think if the time ever comes for me to have the dinner I would have it between 5 and 6.

Between 2pm and 3pm has always been the tradition in my family.

My family was always very flexible with the time, which usually was served around the standard dinner hour, but we go to my in-laws every year for Thanksgiving and the meal starts at 1:00pm - actually, that goes for all their holiday meals.  I have to say, it’s quite organized and stress free - perfect really, just like a Norman Rockwell painting.

When we were first married, we did the ‘visit both parents’ thing every holiday. That stopped after a few years, it was just too much and too much food, LOL.  Holiday meal times in both our families are in the 2-3 PM time area.

It’s a joke between my husband & myself how late we usually eat Thanksgiving dinner! That’s because I work nights, and I almost always end up working the evening before. And our normal “getting up in the morning” time is somewhere between 10 am & noon.

This year I actually had it on the table around 7:30 pm or so, which is pretty good for us! (With lots of assistance from Jim.)

We usually eat around 3 PM on thanksgiving. This year we got started a little late…about 4:30 PM. 
(My brother in law…who does the thanksgiving cooking every year…got off to a late start).
