Happy Thanksgiving from Hollywood! Eva Longoria, Molly Sims, Reese Witherspoon- as well as Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas – show fans how they are celebrating Turkey Day
Hollywood loves to hop onto social media on Thanksgiving morning to show their fans how they are celebrating America’s excuse to one day of the year overeat like crazy.
Some are busy in the kitchen putting the turkey in the oven or decorating that apple pie just so or showing off their autumnal décor.
Others are on power walks to prepare for the big, calorie-laden feast or taking in a football game with their pals or the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade with Lea Michele performing.
Here is a look at what the A list of Tinseltown – including Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, Molly Sims, Eva Longoria, Kristin Cavallari, Reese Witherspoon, as well as Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas – are up to this Thursday in the last big holiday before Christmas.
It is one of the biggest holidays of the year with almost 300 million Americans dining on a turkey dinner with all the fixings like mashed potatoes and brussels sprouts.
There is also the tradition of watching the famed Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade from New York City.
About 3 million people are expected to attend the 96th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in Manhattan as the weather warms up and skies are clear
The parade will feature 16 giant characters, 28 floats, 12 marching bands, 700 clowns and several music stars.
Performers in the parade include Paula Abdul, The Roots, Jimmy Fallon, Jordan Sparks. Broadway singer Lea Michele kicked off the festivities with a performance of Don’t Rain on My Parade from her Broadway Show Funny Girl.

‘When you think about this holiday and the commitment that parents make and that my parents made to me and my career is unbelievable.’
And he said he is ‘looking forward to finishing strong here after Thanksgiving.
‘And obviously with a lot of gratitude for the people that have made such a huge impact in my life and supported me throughout this amazing career.
‘I just want to be that for my kids. You know, I just wanna be the best dad I could be.’

President Joe Biden is spending his Thanksgiving in Nantucket.
Biden and his wife started their annual tradition of spending Thanksgiving on Nantucket before they married in 1977.
It was their way out of choosing which side of the family to spend the holiday with.
They settled on the quaint Massachusetts island after one of Biden’s aides suggested it.
Last year, the family camped out at a sprawling compound owned by David Rubenstein, a billionaire philanthropist and co-founder of the Carlyle Group private equity firm.
