Great video - but just line up the crockpots the night before and you can enjoy your whole day. We make all the fixings the night before, bring them out of the fridge and throw them in the crockpot - mashed potatoes, stuffing (comes out so moist in the crockpot), sweet potatoes and veggie of choice for the year. Go to kegs and eggs to watch the oldest football rivalry in the country in the morning after throwing the turkey in our oven and come home to everything ready! Only thing left is to warm the buns. Love Thanksgiving! Happy to all!

Terrific tutorial. I do some of these steps much earlier though. My vegis are cleaned/chopped/sliced at least a day ahead and snuggled in bags in the frig waiting for their use. I also make Chef John's Make ahead Turkey Gravy and it is a fabulous gravy and I don't have to fuss on turkey day. My pie crust are made and put into the pans a couple weeks ahead and frozen. I pull them out defrost and fill. I will have to add the wine step to my day cuz that is a very nice ritual I have not tried yet :)

I agree with Diana... I don't need or want that much alcohol before I sit down for a meal... I can enjoy it just as much without the alcohol. Some people do, some people don't... there's not right or wrong, just what works for you.
