Happy Thanksgiving, Yankee types

To all the ungrateful colonials on here, I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving yesterday, or if you've not celebrated properly yet - enjoy it.

My in-laws are over; I'm having mine tomorrow. The dog is being walked by the father-in-law, the Frau is cooking. Looks like someone is going to have to drink all this beer themselves...

The secret to success is to have a 30 minute break after the main meal, before one indulges in dessert.
 
I'd just like to apologise to @Ruckerwocman and all his First Nation brethern for not oppressing the Colonists vigorously enough at the correct moment.
Well, you lot did leave Tecumseh at a critical moment just as he was organizing the First Nation Confederation, and that was naughty of you, but we'll forgive you. Los Yanquis do have some uses. They do make some nice toys.

Could someone enlighten me to what 'Murrica has anything to give thanks for?
And as for "Happy"? Cruising galaxies of endless malls buying shit they do not need while gopping on another foam container of takeway MacCheese with plastic forks?
Oh...that's Bluewater......

The day after is worse; I have breakfast, brunch, lunch, mid afternoon and dinner commits; it’s going to be a food marathon.

You would be a dirty, brick and mortar store shopper...

Our family tradition is to have ribs on Thanksgiving, turkey is for Christmas dinner. Talking of Christmas I ordered my christmas pressie yesterday in a The Day Before Black Friday Sales, Sale. Well happy, saved over a hundred sov's on a GPS for the motorcycle.

You could have bought an atlas, and occasionally stopped and asked directions, and saved even more.

Can any of our stateside oppos explain what thanks giving is all about please?

From what I understand you basically have Christmas a month early, but without the decorations and presents.

And then you have proper Christmas a few weeks later.

Aren’t you still eating leftover turkey by the time you have to cook another one for Christmas Day?

No one even likes turkey that much. It’s just giant chicken.

Family.
Leftovers don’t last that long. It is a Turkey not a cow.

do people really fry whole turkeys? Regularly?
What's the advantage (apart from 'you've been framed'-style amusing videos)?
/wah
Honestly I have no idea: to cook an turkey bigger than your oven maybe?

I think it’s a rural man thing. Always seems like a massive PITA if Im honest.

I give thanks to the USA because Jaguar XK8s can be had for pocket change :)

I bought a turkey fryer about 7 years ago. Not for frying turkeys, but because it’s a ginormous pot with a burner. My neighborhood used to have a Chili-cookoff in November. It was an ace piss-up. So I bought a burner and pot for it. Then we somewhat unexpectedly sold our house and I haven’t used it since. I’ve thought occasionally about using it, but the thought of 10 gallons of boiling oil and what it would do to flesh (human, dog or cat) just turns me off it.

I might as well donate it, I’m never going to use it. Not unless the Democrats invade my land, 10 gallons of boiling oil might come in handy. But I wouldn’t waste the price of the oil (about $50) on them :)
