Happy Thanksgiving

Taking a break from my regular weekly posts to provide a little Thanksgiving humor and wish everyone in the US celebrating the holiday all the very best. Happy Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving

It is Thanksgiving holiday in the United States, and because of the COVID-19 outbreak many families and friends were unable to come together to celebrate this American holiday and tradition last year.

If you happen to be celebrating with family or attending a Friendsgiving, I want to wish you a wonderful time, and for those of you who are traveling I hope you have a safe and stress-free trip.

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving day

Gay thanksgivingIt is Thanksgiving in the US today, and I am spending the day with my family up at Lake Winnipesaukee (quite the mouthful – eh?).  If you observe the holiday, I hope you can have yourself a relaxing, fun-filled day with friends and or family.

Happy Thanksgiving

Are you excited for Thanksgiving

Happy ThanksgivingThis guy doesn’t look all that excited for Thanksgiving.  If you observe the American Thanksgiving Holiday, I hope you have a great day tomorrow.  If you happen to be traveling  – I wish you a stress-free and safe journey.

Alabama tanning salon’s Thanksgiving special: ‘Indian color’

ThanksgivingEarlier this month Club Sun, an Alabama chain of tanning salons raised eyebrows when they promised patrons their tanning booths would provide them with “Indian color”.  Apparently the advertisement was pulled shortly after it was posted on their Facebook page and the firm issued apologies for the ad featuring scantily-clad women wearing stilettos.

Club Sun’s Marketing director, David Arnett, ended up posting the following apology, “the ad I created… was in no way intended to be offensive or racist.

Enjoy your pie

ThanksgivingToday is Thanksgiving in the United States, but I’m in Brazil soaking in the sun and enjoying the beach in Rio de Janeiro.  Eat well and enjoy your pie.

Safe travels for your Thanksgiving holiday

travelTomorrow is Thanksgiving in the United States.  While I don’t know the exact numbers, airports, train and bus stations as well as the highways will be filled with people eager to return home and to visit friends for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

Are you traveling to celebrate Thanksgiving?  Give yourself some extra time, and I want to wish you safe travels.  I’m in Brazil this week celebrating Thanksgiving in my own special way, but my thoughts are with my friends and family in the US. Have an extra helping of turkey for me.

Did you get your pie?

community servingsHave you bought your pie yet? You can help those in need when you purchase a Community Servings pie for $25.  Proceeds go to help feed the critically ill. So this year, if you are visiting a friend or family for Thanksgiving, offer to bring dessert and buy a pie (or two).

Not familiar with the great work that Community Servings does for the sick and hungry in Massachusetts?  Watch this video.

Classic Thanksgiving photos

At this point of the day most Americans are catatonic because they ate too much turkey. In honor of the food coma you may find yourself, I thought I’d share these classic photos of turkeys (both of the animal and political variety).  Can you believe it was just 4 short years ago America was able to say good bye to President George W. Bush, and Governor Sarah Palin was rebuffed by a horrified electorate watching her pardon a turkey in honor of Thanksgiving while another is being slaughtered behind her during a television interview.

Happy Thanksgiving Mom and Dad

Wishing all the best to my parents who are in New Hampshire celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday today, while I’m in Brazil.

When I think of what I’m most thankful for my list always starts with these two amazing individuals.

Happy Thanksgiving (from Brazil)

I wanted to acknowledge the Thanksgiving holiday which has always been a personal favorite of mine. In recent years I have used the time off to travel abroad and visit new places. This year is no exception. My partner and I find ourselves back in Brazil celebrating the day.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving eve

Since Thanksgiving is so widely celebrated and significant to Americans it makes me wonder why we don’t have “Thanksgiving Eve”.   After all, we have Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve and any American will tell you Thanksgiving ranks right up there with those holidays; many actually will tell you they prefer Thanksgiving.

So even though it is not official, I’d like to wish those who celebrate this holiday a very happy Thanksgiving eve.

Safe Travels

Mad dash home

Many Americans are making a mad dash to airports to fly home in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. If you happen to be traveling, I want to wish you a safe and speedy trip.
