Get me out of this city!

I'd like to ride the train from NYC to Wassaic the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, and I have some questions about the logistics of traveling on a holiday weekend.

I don't have a very good understanding of the train system (I assume the Nassau train is more of a commuter rail? Or am I mistaken?) and the MTA website is confusing. Optimally, we'd be leaving around 1 or 2 in the afternoon, but we're flexible.
Is it a situation where one can or should buy tickets ahead of time? The advice I've gotten is all from people who have not traveled on such a busy weekend, and I don't know if that would change things. Is it possible for those trains to sell out, or to physically fill up? Is it likely? Is there any way to buy tickets online? Are tickets purchased for a specific date?
Probably dumb question, but thanks so much for your help!
