It depends if they ask for it or not. It's one of the few times a year, I'll gladly do leftovers. Thanksgiving sandwiches with turkey, stuffing and reduced cranberry jelly are good.

We'll be a smaller group than normal this year, so I anticipate sending my sons home with coolers full, as I have done in the past.

We always do left overs in our family, we bring our own tupperware containers to take it home.

I do send leftovers home, as well as making an extra pan of stuffing for my son to take home and bake at his convenience.

If there's a ton leftover, sure. And of course they can take home the leftovers of whatever they brought. If there's just enough for a couple sandwiches, then probably not.

Yes we all "trade" leftovers. My sister has about 50 guests to her house for Thanksgiving so there is always a huge variety of dishes from many different countries and varied skill level of home cooks.

If I make something time consuming I make a lot so I have left overs. If I was entertaining I would make enough and have enough variety so I wouldn't have to cook for a week.

I have given leftovers but not always.

Some things taste better the next day warmed up.

I send care packages home with my son, but otherwise I want to keep the leftovers for us. My favorite meal is the day after Thanksgiving, because it has all the good food and none of the work. We love our turkey sandwiches, so the leftovers never last more than a couple of days.
I stick the carcass in the freezer, with enough turkey to make soup later.
