is running a great online presentation showing the pricing change through the last 50 years of how much it costs to get to and celebrate Thanksgiving with your family. This includes travel expenses, a Thanksgiving dinner for 10 people, and hotel stay. For example, a turkey dinner in 1959 cost $8.36 (in 2009 dollars). By 1979, that turkey dinner jumped to $21.91. This year--as you're about to find out--is $42.91. Shockingly, though, the overall price hasn't increased all that much. In 1959, the overall price was $161.25 and today it's up to only $165.79. The highest price was $209.27 in 1979. Check out the full presentation (here
