Home away from Home on Thanksgiving

Home away from Home on Thanksgiving

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Not everyone is blessed with the talent to perfectly fry a turkey. For that reason, among several others, many families choose to go out to eat for Thanksgiving.

If Golden Coral is on your list for restaurant of choice, be prepared to stand in line.

Dozens of families patiently wait in a long line stretching outside the door. The restaurant is open from 10:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. and is serving a special Thanksgiving buffet.

One of the most important aspects of Thanksgiving is family, whether at home or in a restaurant.

"We usually are at home traditionally Thanksgiving but due to certain situations, we had to come to town and have our thanksgiving dinner", said William Smith.

"It doesn't spoil our Thanksgiving through our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ, because he is an awesome God and we just enjoy the day, enjoy the fellowship, being here and being so thankful for all that the Lord has done for us."
