Most people demand tradition on Thanksgiving Day - the flag football game, cranberry sauce out of the can and grandma's pumpkin pie.

But others like to break out of the mold and come up with their own traditions - a staycation in Mendocino, a trip to Hawaii or a feast of posole and tamales.

If you've found a new and unusual way to celebrate this all-American holiday, we'd like to hear from you.
