GOBankingRates Logo By Mark Shrayber of GOBankingRates | Slide 1 of 9: Ah, Thanksgiving — the second most wonderful time of year. A time to get together with the people nearest and dearest to us, fight about the political landscape and vow that we’ve gotten it all out of our system and the December holidays will be a quieter, more reflective time. It’s also a time to put on our eating pants and just go for it. Every year Americans eat millions of pounds of turkey and mashed potatoes and stuffing before falling asleep on the couch at 4 p.m. But this year might be different. Due to the pandemic, many of us will be at home with just a few people on Thanksgiving. Or with those people on Zoom. Or by ourselves. And that means what we’ll be spending on food might change. Here’s what Americans traditionally buy the most of for Thanksgiving and how that might change due to COVID-19. Last updated: Nov. 16, 2020
