In Canada, it is celebrated on the second Monday in October. In the United States, the fourth Thursday in November. Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks for a bountiful harvest, loved ones near and far, the blessing of simply breathing everyday. Let’s pause for a moment and think about what we’re thankful for. My goal this year is to focus on the small things that I should be grateful for – even without a holiday looming. Having said that, this is serious and silly simultaneously!
Enjoy. Have seconds! or go see The Queen for a more normal set of answers.
1. If you knew this would be the last Thanksgiving holiday with your family, what would you do differently?
With the family gathered ’round, I’d sit at the head of the dinner table, have everyone join hands and say a prayer of Thanksgiving without wearing my Scooby-Doo mask and footie pajamas
2. What is your favorite Thanksgiving dinner dish?
The gravy boat.
3. Why did John Smith fall in love with Pocahontas? Was it her beauty or her bravery?
Neither. It was her heretofore undiscovered talent to tie a knot in a cherry stem with her tongue.
4. Fill in the blank:Over the river and through the woods to grandma’s blog we go (hey…i didn’t produce it…i just found it).
5. What is a cornucopia?
A. A foot ailment B. Freud’s hidden coping strategy C. a Eunich with a very large vocabulary D. third cousin of Onomatopoeia

6. Find a word that rhymes with Thanksgiving
7. Do you have any holiday traditions you’d like to share with us?
I’d like to but given the heightened governmental paranoia at this festive season, I think it best that I keep the blog police at bay…
