    I have in the past. My wife's sister now lives in Holland, and told us about Krampus. Lots of mythology around this season.

    The only Turkey I like is Boar's Head smoked in a big sandwich. The usual family gathering was canceled so had roasted chicken, stuffing, mashed potatoes and cherry pie, all done by my wife and done nicely at that. And we had it in the late afternoon as opposed to the usual 12 or 1PM, which I find an odd time to have a big holiday meal.

    Our family tradition is to try different things. And none of us like Turkey. Plus my wife is trying to be vegetarian, or nearly so.

    Canadian Thanksgiving is almost two months before American Thanksgiving, so I can't remember what we had!

    I won't have been surprised if it had been Indian food. We love our curries!

    I am trying not to laugh out loud so loud that I drown out the TV. Thanks for that!

    First time w/ a pre-cooked smoked turkey - amazing - each bite tasted like very good ham.
    Currently stripping carcass to boil for gravy or soup - smells so good.

    Next time - I'll use the roasting bag for a moister bird, w/ looser joints and easier disassembly.

    Confronted by "good fortune" as I struggled to find room in the freezer - how's that for modern problems?

    Peace - Deeve

    bet the remnants will make for a fine broth too...most would leave it out for the birds...then moan about their droppings on car...patio or washing or windows
    or just bin it..then moan about attracting flies and vermin .waste not and want not...enjoy!
    and the best birds are always the moister ones
    tender and succulent...talk about finger sniffin...i mean licking good
    i can almost hear Unixfish chuckling from here

    We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving (we give thanks every day), but we got together with the father-in-law (elderly dementia patient), watched the Dallas Cowboys stink it up and ate homemade tacos, pinto beans, Spanish rice and nachos...my wife’s Mexican, so this was not a “special” meal—it’s in regular rotation...

    Father-in-law somehow knows every stat to all the (current and past) Cowboys but forgets what day it is.

    Things were very non traditional around here this year.
    Just Mrs Steing Tree and myself.
    We ate pretty much like any other day and spent HOURS talking on the Phone.

    This year simply wasn't the year to go all out.
    Nobody pawn all of the Leftovers on to :)

    Still not good to mock the traditions of others...some go back thousands of years...they must have had a point to them..not just ignorant bumpkins that knew no better...they got through thick and thin by adhering to those traditions...not just something centred around spoiling yer kids more than usual once a year in some shallow acknowledgement of a tradition few actually believe in...then moan theyre skint cos they blew all their money at christmas
    we will be dissecting Easter next...looks like we wont be allowed to mix untill then here...at all
