Tomorrow we’ve got Jack Bishop and Bridget Lancaster of America’s Test Kitchen here to give you cooking tips on turkey, stuffing, potatoes, pies (and more) for Thanksgiving!
We’ll shimmy for that.

This is today and this is the best.

  1. Just to mess with people. I told them that on the West Coast we have another peculiar tradition of removing your top and giving it to the person on your left to wear during the meal. It was hilarious, people bought it, including some of the East Coast Americans! We all removed our tops, and the men in women’s tops made the meal a constant state of laughter. We still do this each year, as there are always newbies with us.

  1. Whether by choice or by circumstance, a lot of Americans are spending Thanksgiving alone. Some are too busy with work or school, or can’t afford to travel. Others have family tensions or prefer to skip the dinner-table questions and bad jokes. A few are even crossing to Canada, where it’s just another Thursday.
