Happy Turkey Day!

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone, and thanks again for the Respecting The Turkey!

Hope you are enjoying a day of rest and thankfulness with your family, stuffing yourself full of stuffing and sitting on the couch watching football.

Stores staying closed on Thanskgiving 2015

Hopefully everyone has their turkeys thawing in the freezer, and people are making plans to celebrate a day to give thanks for they have.

We all know black Friday is right after Thanksgiving where people jump right into the mad dash to buy things, and some retailers over the past few years have even been open for Thanksgiving shopping sales.

Thankfully some stores have come out now to say that they will not be open for shopping, so their employees can spend the day at home with their families.

TheBlackFriday.com has a good running list of stores that will be CLOSED on Thanskgiving Day.

If you're going out Friday, support the stores that support a day of thanks before shopping!

Give Thanks

Hopefully everyone is in a turkey coma, surrounded by friends and family enjoying a day where we can all sit back and give thanks for the things we have in life.

There are 364 other days in the year where we can stress about the things we have to do, stress about the things we need or want and go run around trying to finish all the things we want to accomplish in life, but this day of Thanksgiving is a great day to just stop for a moment, reflect on where we are, who we are and all the blessings we've been given in life.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Thanksgiving Football

Don't forget to tune in and root for your favorite football team while you're chowing down on some pumpkin pie:


Chicago Bears vs. Detroit Lions - 12:30 PM on CBS


Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys - 4:30 PM on Fox


Seattle Seahawks vs. San Francisco 49ers 8:30 PM on NBC

And if you're up early making your turkey dinners, turn on the parades!

Thanksgiving in Space!


Just because you're floating around in a space station 250 miles above the earth doesn't mean you can't enjoy a nice Thanksgiving dinner, right?



The astronauts on the International Space Station are going to have a little meal tomorrow to celebrate what they are thankful for. (My thoughts... oxygen maybe?)

American astronauts Barry "Butch" Wilmore, Terry Virts and Italian Samantha Cristoforetti are going will celebrate Turkey day in zero-g.

Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

Monday, October 13th is Canada's day of Thanksgiving.

Their Thanksgiving is very similar to ours, with big dinners and watching football on TV, just any day through the weekend.

It falls on the same day as Columbus Day in the US.

Writer Zoe Mintz of the IBTimes has a great write up of some of the differences between America's and Canada's Turkey Day.



Our favorite part?
However, unlike American Thanksgiving, Canadians don't typically see the holiday as a kickoff event to Christmas shopping.

Donate to help EVERYONE have a happy Thanksgiving

Many of us will be sitting around a Thanksgiving table unbuttoning our pants because our bellies are so overfull with food.
But there are many families that would go hungry on Thanksgiving, without the wonderful food bank charities that help provide meals for the needy.

Gleaners Food Bank in Michigan distributes over 43 million pounds of food each year!

Take Back Thanksgiving

take back thanksgiving

Another bird of a feather in the fight against the Christmas Creep taking over Thanksgiving, is the folks over at Take Back Thanksgiving.

From their "About Us":

We believe that Thanksgiving has been overlooked in recent years. It’s becoming more and more common that Christmas decorations are on sale before the Halloween costumes even come off, that radio stations are starting to play Jingle Bells before the trick-or-treaters even have a chance to unwrap that first fun size candy bar. We think that’s a crock.

Fight on fellow turkey warriors!

Thanksgiving Unplugged

That little smart phone in your pocket can be pretty hard to put down, even at the dinner table.

But etiquette experts Diane Gottsman and Thomas P. Farley think that for Thanksgiving this year you should unplug those devices and enjoy the holiday meal!

They're calling it Thanksgiving Unplugged.

No Thanksgiving shopping in Massachusetts

Thanks to some old laws called "blue laws", there will be no Christmas shopping on Thanksgiving in Massachusetts!

The laws state that retailers can not be open and can not force people to work those days.

Sounds great!
