Thanksgiving already??

Um, it's Thanksgiving tomorrow?! Crap! I thought I had another week! I was sure Thanksgiving was the last Thursday in November, but Wikipedia informs me that it is, in fact, the fourth Thursday in November. Silly me for making that mistake!

But who am I kidding? It's not like I would have organised anything by next Thursday, anyway, though Hugh has expressed an interest in celebrating. We celebrated last year, in Edinburgh, with a big feast at my friend, Devon's, house. I made him wear a kilt :-) He made a yummy experimental pumpkin pie and he is hoping to improve the recipe this year. I guess I'll have to warn him that he has about 24 hours to do so...or we could just pretend Thanksgiving is next Thursday!


  1. Pretend it's next Thursday! Has Hugh eaten stuffing? Cranberry sauce (the real kind)? Gulp...deviled eggs? CHEESE BALL?!?! HE MUST EAT THESE THINGS.

  2. I might...Yes, the British and Australians have/eat stuffing. When we had Thanksgiving in the UK, the British guests would offer to "make" cranberry sauce. From scratch. So yes, they have cranberry sauce, just not the can-shaped stuff we get (I assume that's what you meant by "the real kind?") Don't know about deviled eggs, and I haven't seen any cheese balls, but I haven't really been looking. Feel free to send any my way! Actually, I'm not sure it would clear customs.
