The average cost of a traditional Thanksgiving dinner is up 13% this year compared to last year.

A meal with turkey and all the trimmings will cost about 13% more this holiday compared to last year, the American Farm Bureau Federation reported Thursday.
The AFBF estimates the average cost to make a meal for 10 people is $49.20. That's $5.73 more than last year's average of $43.47.
The classic Thanksgiving meal comes in at about $5 per person.
A pricier Thanksgiving feast is the result of soaring costs for commodities that has raised prices for food makers, grocers and consumers.
