Thanksgiving with the family, and probably movies.

Do you feel like there is a difference in the mood, in what you are feeling during those two holidays?

It looks to me like this was a question to all of us and no one answered it, so...

The short & sweet answer is that Thanksgiving is an American holiday (and there are no special religious celebrations associated with it that I know of), and by that I mean that it's considered tradition from settlers in the American colonies (and I'm not speaking of Thanksgiving in other countries) while Christmas is a religious holiday (called by different names in different religions, but as Christians are the most common religion it's called Christmas in the USA) and as it's based on the winter solstice it's pretty much a universally celebrated holiday (that is, the day has been marked for the re/birth of the god of which Jesus is but one of many symbols for) as opposed to an American holiday. That is, Americans generally understand that if they go to Russia then Christmas will still be celebrated and will be roughly the same, but not Thanksgiving which is seen as American (though many ignorant Christians think Christmas is uniquely Christian). Of course capitalism in the US has made Christmas much more secular as well.

As for mood, I suppose Thanksgiving is about being grateful for what you have for a single day while Christmas (especially after Capitalism got through with it) is about longing for what you don't have for weeks. And by then the bills, family get together (often with alcohol added in), and cold, dark nights tend to make people more grouchy on Christmas than on Thanksgiving.
