Two years ago a big group of my friends decided to go as just "Thanksgiving" - whatever that means. There were lots of pilgrims and indians and turkeys and side dishes - it was fun! My boyfriend and I went as an indian/pregnant pilgrim, which was pretty easy to pull off and got some laughs. Tip: any costume with a pregnant belly is 8x funnier than without. The odd side effect is that I kept wanting to sit down and have people bring me my beers and I was cradling my belly - it made me feel actually pregnant. I was very motherly that night, wiping crumbs off people's faces and asking them if they should be wearing a sweater to fight the chill. less
