    Happy Thanksgiving! (or Autumn/Harvest holidays)

    Hi, all EF-LO'ers

    I would like to wish our American friends at home and abroad a happy Thanksgiving holiday!

    I am in the USA for the holiday, staying with some friends, so I get to experience this wonderful holiday of gorging and NFL football!

    Are there any particular Thanksgiving traditions that I should know about, on regional terms? I'm getting the traditional New England Thanksgiving this year. What do they do in the American South or in the West.

    For everyone else, does your country or region have an equivalent holiday?

    In Germany, we have Erntedankfest, which celebrates the harvest of the year. It comes with the first Sunday in Oktober and loosely is related to the Oktoberfest for which Bavaria has become so famous. The German holiday, however, is much more religious in nature than American Thanksgiving?

    From personal experience, the difference between American regions (East Coast, Southern, West Coast and Mid-west) lies mainly in the variations on the meal served (more the additions to the meal than the main course though).

    The "traditional" parts seem to be the Turkey (obviously), the stuffing (my family's has sausage in it ) and the sweet potatoes (though there has been some discusion on this) Aside from that the other side-dishes vary all over the board.

    However, the East Coast region has the benefit of having more physical history relative to the actual holiday itself (pilgrims and indians and all that) whereas, in certain areas of the mid-west, the holiday itself tends to be taken lightly and is viewed with more an air of seasonal feasting than any actual historical significance (it's hard to take a holiday seriously when it tries to base it's history on technical theft and stupidity).

    But the country-over will be filled with plays and pageants in elementary schools devoted to the "First Thanksgiving".

    I personally enjoy the holiday for the namesake itself, and like to Give serious Thanks to the better things in my life at this time. And it's always a good way to start off the holiday season.

    And let's not forget the football. :w00t:

    If you want some real info on it you can look here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thanksgiving_day

    Well... to wish everyone from the U.S. a happy Thanksgiving, since not everyone's TG day is today.

    Happy Thanksgiving, folks.

    We've got a lot of veggies added to that... some new, since my older brother's cookin', but some old, such as broccoli in a cheese sauce. Yum yum!

    Usually, my family goes up to New York City to see a Broadway play for Thanksgiving, but this year we couldn't, as my mother just had open heart surgery. So we're having it at the house.

    Thanksgiving is all about eating too much food, then eating too much of the leftovers the next day!

    Happy Thanksgiving, folks.
