The Queen's Meme #61 ~ The Silly Serious Thanksgiving Meme
Welcome to The Queen's Meme #61 ~ The Silly Serious Thanksgiving Meme!
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!
1. If you knew this would be the last Thanksgiving holiday with your family, what would you do differently?
I might be tempted to use the good china.

My favorite dish at Thanksgiving is with out a doubt the dressing. That is all I need, well the pumpkin pie also.

Silly girl, where did you find th0se definitions? You know I am going to google this just to make sure?
6. Find a word that rhymes with Thanksgiving
Yanksliving... it's a new holiday if you didn't know that already?
7. Do you have any holiday traditions you'd like to share with us?
Nope, it is pretty much the same way as we have always done it. I clean and clean my home, Bake a turkey and a ham, set the table, make the tea, make the dressing, make a pie, make supper the night before for the early birds, then we wait for the family members to arrive with their food offering. We eat like we have never had a meal, visit furiously,pack up the left overs and just like a mad dash they are off. Poof! Whew! I am tired just thinking about all of those conversations, sounds like a bunch of chickens talking. Prakk, prakk, doodle do, and so forth.
Those are chicken sounds if you never have heard them before, the spelling may not be right, but I can make the sounds.
