Um, it's a holiday that revolves around stuffing and potatoes. No contest.

1. First of all, if you're lucky, you've got some time off to put your feet up and hang out with your dog.

And the company of your dog is the greatest company of all.

2. Also, there is food in abundance. Delicious food. Food that never tastes as good as it does on this, the day of abundant delicious food.

Speaking of watching a parade... The best way to do it is in 360, through Verizon's exclusive livestream of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, hosted by Marlon Wayans and Olivia Culpo!
