It is funny how Americans consume certain foods with certain holidays. Like turkey on Thanksgiving Day and corned beef on St. Patrick’s Day. Both could be eaten anytime of the year, but we seem to usually devour it on the appropriate holiday instead. Of course the turkey is an All-American bird and it fits the holiday in November. But, in what may surprise many, corned beef and cabbage is not the main staple in Ireland on St. Patrick’s Day.
Happy New Year! Where did the year go? I cannot believe we are celebrating a new year arriving already. Wasn't it just March and the St. Patrick's Parade? Wasn't it just Gus Macker time in May? Wasn't it just July with fireworks going off at the Quincy Gems game? Wasn't it just the last Blues in the District time in September? Wasn't it just Halloween, Thanksgiving and even Christmas? Where does time go?
The real estate site Estately has put out a chart showing which states in America are most likely to have a miserable Thanksgiving. On the flip side you can see which ones are most likely to have a pleasant holiday.
This strikes me as very funny. Not only is Black Friday the busiest shopping day of the year, but it also turns out that it is one of the busiest days of the year for plumbers. Who would have thought that plumbing problems would be on the rise the day following the biggest pig-out of the year?
Whatever happened to Black Friday (the biggest shopping day of the year) being on Friday only? Now Black Friday begins on Thanksgiving Day at some stores and even on Thanksgiving eve...Wednesday. Well, some store have said enough is enough.
If you take a quick look at the calendar, you'll notice that Thanksgiving is still over two weeks away, yet that hasn't stopped two California women from lining up for Best Buy's Thanksgiving Day sale.
Thanksgiving Day is 55 days away and you can thank Abraham Lincoln for establishing it as a national holiday. Lincoln proclaimed that Thanksgiving Day should be observed on the last Thursday in November on this date in 1863.
As we prepare to sit down and devour our Thanksgiving turkey meal I wonder just how much people know about the turkey itself. With that in mind I present ten turkey questions and answers. See how well you do and then ask these questions around the dinner table tomorrow.
