Do you "fast" before Thanksgiving?

In recent years I have so eagerly anticipated Thanksgiving dinner that I hardly had anything to eat before the meal. Maybe an apple or a bowl of oatmeal, but that's it until later in the day when the food starts to roll out.

However, I know many people who have a special Thanksgiving breakfast; others don't eat anything for 24 hours leading up to dinner. What about you? Are you a "faster" or is Thanksgiving a day of one special meal after the next?
