For Corps de Ballet dancer Caitlin Peabody, the perfect Thanksgiving blurs the line between holidays. “The parade is on from start to finish,” she said, adding that she’ll accompany it with coffee and maybe even a mimosa in the morning. The traditional day also includes an obligatory viewing of The Miracle on 31st Street. “I always have to watch that too at some point…By the end of the night only Christmas music is playing back home.” This year, Caitlin will be spending Thanksgiving with her boyfriend’s family in Greensburg and, to keep the taste of home, she’ll be bringing her mom’s (Mama Peabs) Creamed Onions recipe – “A must for me every year, no matter where I’ll be.”
