This year, White's holiday wish will be fulfilled -- thanks to an impromptu Craigslist posting.
The 36-year-old posted a two-sentence invite on the Internet classifieds site last week. The receptionist at a dentist's office was feeling a little lonely, her two sons spending the holiday with their dad, so she figured maybe four or five strangers would reply and join her and longtime partner Doug White for Thanksgiving dinner.
Instead, 32 people are headed to their Littleton townhouse. They're busy preparing nine turkeys, four hams, 16 boxes of stuffing and a dozen or so pies.
The Whites say they've been blessed.
They're both working and have bought a home. They say the dinner is their way of giving thanks for their changed lives.
