Asking Relatives to Pitch in Money for Thanksgiving

This year I’m making Thanksgiving dinner for a lot of family and friends. Probably around 15 people will be there.

The economy sucks, and Thanksgiving is expensive. I already dropped a lot of dough on an expensive flight, and I don’t feel like paying for all the food.

So instead of asking everyone to bring a side dish, I’ve asked them each to pitch in $10 toward the cost of the food. And they’re all cool with it.

I actually heard about this through a friend of mine who started the tradition a few years ago.

Apparently their family wanted Thanksgiving to be as lavish and fun as it was 10 or 20 years ago, so everyone pitches in some cash to make it happen.

Is it rude to ask people to give money for Thanksgiving dinner? Since you have to feed so many people, isn’t $10 per person reasonable? Or is it tacky?
