Take a page from Freddie Prinze Jr., who tells Us about his “traditionless Thanksgiving traditions”
Paulina Jayne Isaac

No two Thanksgivings are alike at Freddie Prinze Jr.’s house. “There are no rules,” Butterball’s Ultimate Thanksgiving host tells Us. “I want people to feel like they can do what they want to do.” That means sometimes they’re a big formal group — “I did place cards one year” — and sometimes it’s come-as-you-are. Prinze’s wife, Sarah Michelle Gellar, gets in on the ever-changing feast too: “She did Thanksgiving donuts one year,” Prinze says. “Powdered donuts with coffee as our dessert. I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m not eating the pie.’ ”

That said, the actor and cookbook author, 43, does have tips that can be applied year after year. “Anything you can do the day before, do the day before,” he advises. “And get more wine than you think you need. You never want to run out of it at a family dinner — that’s just a rough night for everyone.”
