We hear you! I would probably make the relish -- tops -- the day before. Left refrigerated, you're good to go.

Not sure what the food-safety mavens say about this, but I think you can safely go more than one day ahead. I usually make cranberry sauce/relish the weekend before and park them in the fridge. I've never noticed any loss of quality, and they seem just as good several days after Thanksgiving. Tthe uncooked relishes, in particular, definitely benefit from having a few days to let the flavors mingle.

There's so much acid and sugar in there, it can't be fertile ground for bacteria as long as it's kept cold.

I was just going to ask about that, I was planning on making the cranberry relish today and parking it in the fridge until T-day. I usually make it the day before but am trying to do as much as possible ahead. I don't want to take any chances with bacteria but as you say sfmiller with the sugar and acid it should not be a problem.
