Preamble to Thanksgiving

I'm sure that I have mentioned many times on this blog that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.  There is just something magical about the day and the bird and the pie, don't you think?  This year, as I am far away from home, Thanksgiving is going to be a bit different in food and in celebration.  As we have already celebrated the holiday Canadian-style, and because I can only eat/cook one whole poultry a year, our menu is going to have some variations.  Yep, that's right, instead of the traditional American meal, we're going to have the good old traditional Utahn meal of ham, funeral potatoes, and jello.  Yummy!  Keith has to work (as Thursday isn't a holiday here), so I'll be home all alone in my kitchen all by myself instead of with my mom and my sisters.  Lame.  Yet, I am determined to make it a good day--and by a good day, I mean the best-by-gone-it Thanksgiving ever!!!

Anyway, I read this article on Yahoo today, and I thought it was a good introduction to the day with some fun Thanksgiving Day facts.  It definitely gets me excited for the holiday.  Maybe I'll even eat my Thanksgiving this year the same way the pilgrims did.  Who needs a fork anyway...?
