  1. Sadly, my family does not get together to sit down and eat. I think we did it once for Thanksgiving about two years ago. We usually grab our food and sit wherever we want.

  3. My family sits down to dinner occasionally, but not in any formal way. It's just when the food is ready get your plate, everyone sit down and eat. Get up when your done.

  6. Our family tries to eat dinner together, but everyone is on opposite schedules. One of us works third shift, one works 9-5, and I usually end up working 3-9 most of the time when I work. So I hardly see anyone, just in passing. It's a disaster.

  25. When I still lived at home, we ate dinner together every night. We're big family dinner people. My dad had to be in China for thanksgiving and he even called in and said grace for everyone so he could still be a part of the dinner. (:
