Poor Big Bird!
He must have been delicious.
What do you have for Thanksgiving then ? Mc Donalds ? No friends or family ? NO PUMPKIN PIE ?We never had a big blowout, maybe an extra veg and of course dessert with whipped cream.cheers, parsnip
Oh, I had pumpkin pie!It just seems from the outside looking in that Americans treat the occasion as a bigger thing than Christmas, which baffles me.
Families come together or try to ... eat, talk and play. If no one starts the family fight everyone has a good time. No gifts, trees, decorations everywhere (sorry Martha) just family and friends coming together.At Christmas you might have family over but if you have children, there are gifts, breakfast, candy, tears and who knows which dinner will you be at. It is a whole different feel to the day. Plus the exhaustion of buying, wrapping sending, trying to find the right gift cookies, parties, all the wrong things....... plus the dinner.Thank Goodness my family was not like this but many are.So Thanksgiving is just a lovely day. Cook a lovely dinner and share it.Happy American Thanksgiving to you.
In Canada Thanksgiving is more subdued.
That map is quite extensive. Happy Thanksgiving William.
One needs mountains of stuffing!
Your Klingon (sic) turkeys look more like the wild turkeys that the pilgrims would have eaten.
When Benjamin Franklin proposed the turkey as our national symbol, he must have had a vision of the future...say, in 2017?
No shortage of political turkeys around these days!
Oh my! I had fun reading all the memes :)Wishing a happy thanksgiving to you and yours!
Good to laugh at our humans ~ love the animals and captions are delightful! A ShutterBug Explores,aka (A Creative Harbor)
Comes within one vote...I can't laugh at that one. Reminds me too much of "won the popular vote but lost the electoral college" disaster of last year.But the dog and cats ones are hilarious!
I enjoy the tradition and camaraderie of our Thanksgiving. However, you will never see me shopping in the Los Angeles area the day after the holiday. And I mean never. I don't even go to the grocery store. The city goes nuts.
Even though we had Thanksgiving weeks ago, the stores all get into Black Friday mode yesterday.
Hey, finally climbed out of my turkey coma. Good stuff(ing), William!
