I have strong reservations about whether the first Thanksgiving remotely resembled the ‘history’ I was taught in Kindergarten. American holiday traditions tend to include over-eating, shopping, or getting drunk. It’s a miracle that the concept of giving thanks even surfaces at all.
But in the hope of messing up the Thanksgiving feast for you, I offer these ten things to liven up the table-talk today.
Now why don't you add your "things-not-to-say" below?
And my favorite quote about Thanksgiving is by Jon Stewart who said,
"I celebrated Thanksgiving in an old-fashioned way. I invited everyone in my neighborhood to my house, we had an enormous feast, and then I killed them and took their land."
And I'll end this tirade with a poem:
May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off of your thighs!
