So, it's Thanksgiving in Canada this Monday, and a bunch of people choose to celebrate it on the Sunday instead. It's probably my favourite meal of the year; having your family and friends around you while you stuff yourself with too much turkey, talking to people you haven't seen for a while, falling asleep on a comfy sofa because you're full and warm...it's the best. The endless amount of sandwiches afterwards isn't too shabby either.

So, fellow Canadians, how are you celebrating your Thanksgiving? American duders, do you have plans yet? I'm pretty stoked!

Just finished eating. Was not very good as the stuffing was tasteless, the potatoes were over cooked and the dessert was a rather revoltingly made pumpkin cheesecake. The Ham was good at least.

Happy Thanksgiving, man! My mother is cooking a big meal of Turkey, vegetables, gravy, peas pudding, boiled partridgeberry pudding, salt beef, and rhubarb cake. I'm going to stuff my face!

Yeah, I've been doing more than my fair share of the cooking lately so that doesn't happen. I love my mom's parents, but god damn it, boxed potatoes just aren't the same! They just don't realize it because they've been smoking for 40 years and have only recently quit... Nope, I'll suffer through KP duty, for the good of everyone.

@Sackmanjones: Sorry, but I'm not going to lie about something as dumb as that. It was what it was.

@crusader8463: That sucks. Did you have a good time with your friends/family?

@TooWalrus: They really aren't the same. Fresh mashed potatoes and gravy is so good!

I'm lucky, I guess. I'm going with my family to a friend's family's Thanksgiving dinner tonight, and then I'm having my own with some other friends tomorrow night. There's going to be so much turkey over the next two days...

I'm not really into the whole family thing, but I'm incredibly tempted to run down to the store and buy a pumpkin pie...just eat the whole thing myself...

Hurry! Someone talk me out of it!

I have some plans with my mom and brother in downtown Chicago for Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving, Canadian duders!

@Chop: Do it! This is the one time of the year where pumpkin pie is better than apple pie!

@Video_Game_King: Yes, that's pretty much what all Canadian Thanksgivings are like. Do they have anything similar on the moon?

@SoylentGreen:

How would I know? I don't even know what Canadian Thanksgiving is about? Is it like the American Thanksgiving, only with more getting beavers drunk on wine?

I'm jealous, Thanksgiving meals are the best.

Happy Thanksgiving

@Video_Game_King: Almost, except replace the beavers with basically everyone and the wine with maple whiskey. It's good stuff!

Well, today is thanksgiving in the United States, so I was just looking for a place to say "Hau’oli La Ho’omakika’i" (pronounced how-oh-lay la ho-o-ma-key-kah-ee) to the community at Giant Bomb. I'm thankful for all you crazy kids who hang out on Jeff, Ryan, Brad, Vinny, and Patrick's lawn....

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy American Thanksgiving to all who celebrate-- and to those who don't, eat a good meal today anyways, you deserve it.

We didn't have a super huge meal-- turkey, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and sweet potato casserole. We're also planning to have pumpkin or apple pie later on (we'll save the one we don't eat for another time). My family's not really into ham, so we never make ham on Thanksgiving-- it's just me, my parents, and my siblings anyways, so I think it'd be too much.
