"Celebrate!" squealed Fergie when StyleList asked what her plans were for this Thursday.

Other celebrities gave us more specifics, but the spirit was the same--no matter how big the name, Thanksgiving is a time to be with loved ones.

"It's about my family," the designer Tory Burch told us. "I have a ton of family and kids coming. It'll be our first Thanksgiving in our new house. I hope to have [a new tradition] since I want to bring all my brothers and all our kids together. I'm really excited about that."

"Sex and the City" funnyman Mario Cantone said "I'm gonna go to the Berkshires with my partner for Thanksgiving and then I'm going to cook and be with my family in New York for Christmas... I do everything. I'm like Meryl Streep; I shop, I cook, I do it all, I do accents!"

In Los Angeles we caught up with Bravo's star stylist, Rachel Zoe, just before she announced to the world her pregnancy. "None this year, no traditions," she said coyly, chosing not to admit there would be anything extra-special about this Thanksgiving. "I'm just going to spend it locally, which is weird for me, and chill."

Designer Rachel Roy told us: "We all have to go around the table and tell each person at the table what we're thankful for about them. It can be a bit much for young people to get used to, but I think it's a good tradition. It's small, so it depends on whose boyfriend is there and whether the extended family makes it. It's nice because it's heartfelt.

Some stars take the break as an excuse to get iout of town. "I'm divorced now, so I will be spending the holidays traveling," "Dexter" actress Julie Benz told us. "I'm headed to Paris and am very excited to see new places and go where I have never been. That will be my new tradition!"

And "Mad Men's" Elisabeth Moss said "I'm going to London. I'm going to go spend Thanksgiving with my family and then I'm going to London and be out there, rehearsing for my play." (That play is "The Children's Hour," opposite Keira Knightley. And if you're looking for a great film to rent over the holiday weekend, StyleList recommends the classic 1961 movie version with Shirley MacLaine and Audrey Hepburn.)

Closer to home, you can look for the Snoop Dogg family courtside in Los Angeles. "We spend the holidays with the Lakers. We are a Laker family and never miss a game," Mrs Dogg, aka Shante Broadus, told us. Fellow Angelino Lisa Gastineau is going somewhere a little more glam for turkey. "I spend the holidays with Brittny, we usually go to ["Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills" star] Taylor Armstrong's for Thanksgiving."

But one of the better family traditions definitely belongs to New York designer, Nicole Miller. "We used to go to Cumberland Island every Thanksgiving and we would dress up as Indians," she told us. "We wore face paint and headbands and I wore a raw edge suede skirt. That really worked."
