Although I didn't celebrate this, but I just want to say Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate the day. Hope all of you have a great family reunion (as so far I can understand) :)

Happy Thanksgiving to all. We shouldn't need a reason to celebrate everyday life with our family and friends, but Thanksgiving is just such an occasion.

Even if you don't "officially" celebrate this holiday, you can still reach out to your loved ones and let them know how happy you are to have them in your life.

Peace,

Kimberly

Over here it is actually Friday. I wonder how many million turkeys gave up their life for this celebration?

Happy thanksgiving everyone! Maybe even if you don't celebrate you can still appreciate all you have. So many around the world suffering so much.

@Kellychien, I love your design, very nice!

I know why the USA celebrates thanksgiving, but what's the Canadian version all about?

Even stranger, why does Norfolk Island celebrate Thanksgiving when it is an Australian dependency?

The answer is that Thanksgiving was a tradition imported by American whalers.

Then there is the Liberian version, the German version, the Dutch version.....

My wife and I will be going to my youngest sons house for Thanksgiving. After years of renting, he bought a beautiful house this past summer; and he wants to start having holiday traditions in his own home for my granddaughter. Of course "mom" will still be making some of his favorites. so we'll be hauling everything over there this year.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my US friends. Happy Thursday to everyone else.

Now I gotta go snow blow my driveway... we got 12 inches of snow yesterday into last night here in the Hudson Valley.

Good thing we didn't plan a Bar-B-Q (this is the view this morning from my deck) lol

I assume the name of that restaurant is C r a c k e r Barrel.

And JohnnyRoy, I like the photo of snow on your deck. People get tired of snow in late spring, but I love how it looks. And the deck looks like a nice place to hang out in the summer.

But here's a photo of SERIOUS snow, taken by someone presumably in the Rochester area a few weeks ago. I mean c'mon, this is ridiculous.

Anyway, sitting here typing this after a great Thanksgiving dinner--turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green bean casserole, carrot and bacon casserole, jello salad, rolls, pumpkin pie with whipped cream. If I had to give blood right now it would probably look like red sludge. In kind of a stupor, but I'll feel fine tomorrow. Happy Thanksgiving to all. We are so lucky.

@KellyChien:

That salad with the pearl onions and peas looks good! If you don't mind, could you PM the recipe to me?

Regards,

Kimberly

Kelly, could you overlay call-outs to each of the dishes? TG ain't a known Menu here in London. I feel Thanks-Giving-Awareness-Dish-Challenged...... TGADC, it's a known affliction.....

And you just KNOW I luv me grub.

Grazie

Yum, I can't see anything inedible in that spread :-)

HAHA! The only thing i made on that table is the smashed taters in the upper right corner, and potato is just about the ONLY vegetable i eat, so i don't even pay attention to things like the salad or the peas & onions. However, i'll be happy to get the recipe from my mom. I'd say that most of everything there is pretty normal and traditional USA Thanksgiving fare, except for the ham. Usually that's more of a Christmas item, but my brother isn't really that fond of turkey so we added it for him. Rutabaga is a rather new tradition but is gaining popularity quickly. The rest are all items that are likely to be seen on most every table for, well, pretty much since Thanksgiving began.

But what is the mystery spice with the green top?

And maybe it's a regional thing but I've never seen a Thanksgiving table without a Green Bean Casserole (french-cut green beans, can of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup, french-fried baby onion rings on top). Trivial to make, tastes delicious.

The only thing I probably wouldn't take on the table would be the sweet potatoes. When I was a kid, mom kept making them and I kept resisting them. Just don't like something about them. On the other hand, I just loved rutabagas.

riredale, agreed with the regional things. We have been having broccoli casserole instead of green bean casserole. Still tasty though.

I'm guessing this table was for yankees. :) In the south, it would be cornbread dressing. Candied yams instead of whole sweet potatoes. Collard greens would be there too.

We always have ham too. Instead of regional, maybe it's just family traditions.
