Okay, guys, so how do you split non-religious holidays?

While I am Jewish now, like my boyfriend, my family is Christian. So it makes sense to do Hanukkah with his folks and Christmas (nonreligiously) with mine. But we are stuck on Thanksgiving. It's something of a tradition for him to be with his mom that day (his dad travels for work a lot and boyfriend always made time to travel to her). We don't really do anything for July 4th or Veteran's Day or what have you because those aren't major holidays and I generally don't get them off of work. It's kind of frustrating because I feel that I have a right to have him with me, with my family, for a Thanksgiving or two.

How do you guys do it?
