Every year we play a serious game of bingo (no chatting allowed). Uncle Ossie traditionally called out the numbers until he passed away a few years ago.
He was generally a quiet man. But during bingo, when he went “oooh!” you could tell he was pretty close to making bingo!

My family always eats shrimp cocktail as a Thanksgiving dinner appetizer. That’s right: SHRIMP COCKTAIL.

Larry's homemade chili.
Sara Lerner, reporter
Every year my mom makes a Jell-O salad, which we like to call “jelled sallo.” We are still laughing about it after 20 years, even though it's really not that funny.
