Thanksgiving. A time to look back and celebrate good health with family, friends and Lady Gaga. But apparently some cannot get enough of those they spend their days with and plan on partaking in cornucopias of food with co-workers. A new CareerBuilder survey found that 19 percent of workers plan to celebrate the holiday with their workplace peers either in or out of the office.

While the idea of this is wonderful, because it sure beats spending the day alone, I'm concerned that the long-standing tradition of returning to work and regaling your co-workers with stories of crying mothers, burnt pecan pies, senile uncles and overly dry turkey will be lost. If you're going to live these epic tales together, then who I ask, do we get to share these stories with? Fortunately, if you're video-taping any of it, the Internet.
