It is now too late to eat leftovers that have only been refrigerated, not frozen. Refrigerated leftovers should be eaten within 4 days of their preparation - so Monday after Thanksgiving. If you froze them - you could eat them for about 2 months.

Here is a great chart from the U S Department of Health and Human Services on food storage Cold Food Storage Chart | FoodSafety.gov.
