Are you only going to one Thanksgiving dinner this year?  Apparently that makes you the weird one.


According to a survey by Boston Market, Americans go to an average of 1.7 Thanksgiving dinners or meals.  In other words, most people will go to more than one.


Here are a few more results from the survey:


1.  The average Thanksgiving dinner will have nine or 10 people.


2.  About a quarter of people will go to a "friendsgiving" dinner.


3.  5% will eat at a restaurant for at least one of their Thanksgiving dinners.


4.  And 30% are stressed about how complicated it is to juggle all of the different places they have to be on Thanksgiving.
