Ahh, Thanksgiving. A time of turkey, travel, tryptophan, and repeated viewings of "A Christmas Story" surrounded by family. If you're coupled up in a relationship, you boo is probably in the picture, too, and perhaps-awkwardly negotiating an overnight bedroom situation. Will he be sleeping in your room (read: bed)? Will he be banished to the guest room with veiled threats from your mom that he'd better stay there all night? Did your normally-cool parents suddenly become sexytimes-Nazis? Why the hell is this such a big deal?! You share a bed all the time at your apartment!

There's no sense in fighting it, unless you want to make the weekend awkward and put S-E-X on everyone's mind. Whether he's joining you and yours for the festivities, or you are joining him and his, here's how to share a bed at a parents' house without epic awkwardness.
