    Happy Thanksgiving Redszone!

    Hi guys,

    I haven't posted on here as much as I used to. I wanted to take the time to wish my RZ friends a wonderful holiday season.

    Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

    Re: Happy Thanksgiving Redszone!

    For those who don't know, I am married to a Kenyan. Today we celebrated Thanksgiving with a house full of Kenyans, most of them Luo, the same tribe as my wife and our new President elect. For the most part, it was a typical Thanksgiving, except that the food was a mix of American and Kenyan food, mostly Kenyan since I was the only American present.

    For most of the afternoon it was like any other Thanksgiving; we cooked a lot of food, prayed over the meal, ate way too much, watched football until the games got lopsided, and socialized...while the children retired to the basement for quality time with the Playstation. Most of the time people were in small groups talking, mostly about things going on in Africa, which left me somewhat out of the loop, but eventually all of the adults ended up around the living room and one of them spoke up.

    He said, "I know this is an American holiday, but the truth is that we all have a lot to be thankful for. We are all in this great country and we can take advantage of the opportunities that America has to offer. I think we should thank God for that."

    The whole point of this holiday hit me at that point. Here I had been eating too much food and complaining that the football games were lopsided and not interesting, and then this man who came here from another country stands up and earnestly says that he thanks God for the ability to be here. I became more thankful at that moment myself, glad to not only have a lot of food and friends to spend a day with, but thankful for the opportunities that have been afforded me in this country. I guess viewing America through the eyes of a foreigner made me even more grateful for what I have and where I live. We truly have a lot to be thankful for.

    I'm recycling this thread from last Thanksgiving. We can add our thoughts for 2009 if we so choose.

    And besides, the post by OldRightHander (just above this one) is an especially good entry.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.

    Enjoy your turkey, Redszone! Hopefully the turkey won't carry over into the Reds season this year.

    Re: Happy Thanksgiving Redszone!

    This is the day I dread every year.

    My wife's family makes a big to do about their traditional family recipe:

    Orange Jello topped with whipped cream and grated cheddar cheese.

    The cheese on the Jello doesn't set well with me. I get ill just thinking about it. My wife gets angry with me, because she thinks I'm just trying to be funny when I start a gag reflex.

    But if that's the worst part of the day for me, I got a lot to be thankful for.

    Happy Thanksgiving my friends.

    Even though I know very few of you outside of the internet realm, I'm thankful for this little online community full of good people. Hope you all have a great day.

    Re: Happy Thanksgiving Redszone!

    Also, it'd be great if you'd list your entire Turkey Day menu. I'll start:

    Turkey (of course)
    stuffing
    mashed potatoes
    cranberry sauce
    corn
    rolls (crescent this year)

    DESSERT:
    Pumpkin Pie
    Hershey's creme pie

    A classic, traditional T-giving meal.
