T H A N K S G I V I N G !!!
Isn't that the time you've eggnog and turkey? I wonder how that comes about. We have thanksgiving celebrations in a few countries but I have yet known anyone who celebrates Thanksgiving! At least I've not been invited to one such dinner party before. So, what business do I have to start writing a review on this topic?
What business indeed! I do know a thing or two about thanksgiving. That's why! :-)
Well, for a start, thanksgiving are celebrated on different day and month in Canada and U.S.
Do you know that? I bet you don't! Many Americans didn't know that as far as I've gathered from last year's reviews.
In somewhat the same way, Easter is the main holiday in the U.S. while Good Friday is more prominent in other English speaking countries like the U.K. and its colonies.
The meaning behind thanksgiving has nothing to do with Turkey. Does it?
Unless Turkey is claiming so, I've no idea! So, why eat turkey (the bird) and not chicken or pigeon?
Ever wonder why traditions are so?
What has turkey got to do with giving thanks to God?
With the wonders of the internet, we can find all kinds of answers out there. Hence, I take on the liberty of educating myself since I'm curious to find out today. It occurred to me perhaps that's the only way the farmers could get rid of these poultries! Haha!
Well, I wasn't far off... This is what I found online! If you're interested, you may want to read it yourself :-)
Roasted geese sounds so much better and taste heavenly on the palate! Too bad they are not found in the U.S.! There certainly are plenty in my part of the world :-) Ok, I'll get some in my favorite restaurant this thursday then! You know me, I'll find all sorts of excuses to celebrate when it comes to food!!!
As for giving thanks to God, it shouldn't be just an annual affair! We ought to give thanks every day and if not possible, then at least once a week! Nonetheless, giving thanks with family and friends around is a great tradition and I hope the Americans & Canadians keep that for always! It's good for the soul!
Let's celebrate Thanksgiving, the Charlie Brown way! Happy Thanksgiving to everyone on Lunch.com!
P.S. If I'm in Boston, I'd have replaced the turkey for lobster!!! :D
