Oh crap...it's thanksgiving

It's that time again where expats have to disrupt their lives and look somewhat interested in the american yawn hobby of overeating and watching football. It's almost as bad as independence day , you know, where they celebrate a few farmers with pitchforks destroying the entire british army. This is too much, I think I'll go take a dump

We actually had a bit of a family get together last Sunday, and I already made myself a turkey curry on Monday with the leftovers. Is this the first official turkey leftovers curry of the festive season?

It was ******* great, by the way.

EDIT - the curry, not the get together.
EDIT 2 - although the get together was pretty good also.

Love Thanksgiving. 6 NFL games in one week (3 additional ones on Thursday) is like Christmas come early in the peagle house.

But, thanksgiving is actually about the first settlers who were incompetent twats who couldn't grow food and would make the local natives laugh as they would catch and try to eat horseshoe crabs from the Chesapeake Bay . The native Americans became so embarrassed that they took the settlers aside and showed them how to grow and store food and introduced them to corn/maize. Of course, within 50 years when the settlers were able to survive on their own, they started slaughtering the local natives...

I wish in the states for thanksgiving last year. This year, it's Christmas, which is rubbish as I get Christmas anyway. I want extra holidays, not bloody existing ones

Anyway, happy thanksgiving everyone

I was in New York for thanksgiving last year.

About 15 random people with very tenous links to each other got together for a meal someone in Billyburg. Had a brilliant time.

Love Thanksgiving.

Had a celebration at the weekend which was great. Christmas except the stress and the expense of presents. Good food (everyone brought a dish to ours) Palace on the tele(replaced the NFL game!) lots of alcohol and a **** off bubble and squeak/turkey breakfast the next morning!

Will do something tomorrow, although nothing locally caters for Thanksgiving, the wife will be missing America and her family so not sure what to do, may well be a case of the local american themed restaurant(which didn't even know it was thanksgiving tomorrow, when i called them earlier.
