Hello friends!! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday cuz, FOOOOOOOD!!! ;P I can't believe it's only a week and a day away now!

To celebrate the countdown, and earn some points for your pon/doggo, finish THIS wordsearch and MESSAGE me a screenshot of your finished game! DO NOT POST IT HERE!!

Your finished game will earn you 5k points on an animal! The fastest time will earn another 5k points!!

For another 5k points, tell us what your thanksgiving meals usually consist of! Do you have any differing food traditions?

Be sure to post here in the forum where you would like your points to go!!!

I'll start!!

- I used all the words in the word search from what my family's meal usually consists of, lol! - Turkey, sometimes ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, green bean casserole, stuffing, rolls, various salads, sometimes squash, pumpkin pie, and usually pecan pie as well. 

- As for other food traditions, Pants' family background is very Scandinavian (mostly Norwegian, some Swedish), so in lieu of the traditional cranberry sauce, we usually have "giftas" (pronounced YIFTAS). I had to search google long and hard to actually find a recipe, because the search engine didn't know what I was talking about. xD CLICKY if you are interested. Basically it's a trifle of cranberries, crushed saltine crackers, and whipped cream. However, if you are truly Scandinavian, you would use lingonberries! The other scandinavian side dish we have many times is lefse! A true Scandinavian staple to any meal. xD CLICKY again, if you are interested. Lefse is the Scandinavian version of a tortilla. Made mostly with potatoes and flour, rolled with a special rolling pin, and fried on a griddle. I especially like it with butter and brown sugar but many of the older generation eats it with just butter. OR, you can make yourself a nice wrap with all your Thanksgiving leftovers the next day. xD

You have until Wednesday, November 25th, 11:59pm HP time to finish this activity!

what we eat: For Thanksgiving we almost always have dinner rolls, turkey & ham, mashed potatoes, sweet potato pie, cream cheese pie, green bean casserole and gravy! Generally there are a bunch of appetizers like deviled eggs, a veggie tray, cheeses and crackers, grapes and other simple things. Everyone usually drinks quite a bit. my favorite is pomegranite seeds with champagne. yummy!

Being in Colorado the Broncos generally are playing so it is on TV, haha. And there probably 20 of family and friends gathered together. Some people are just talking others play basketball, lots of people in the kitchen and sometimes we do puzzles or play board games. This year due to covid I do not believe I will be seeing any of my family as technically we are not supposed to combine any households and since I do not live with them my sister, who is a pediatrician, she is hesitant to not follow CDC and Colorado govt guidelines which I understand.

Points to Dog #129924 Please

For Traditional food, I would say we have turkey but usually in slices and not an actual turkey, stuffing in a bowl, and rice and gravy. There's usually an assortment of apple and other pies for dessert (I only pay attention to the apple because it's the only one I eat). Then we have things like spam musubi, cooked steak pieces, hot dogs, Chinese food, and a variety of dips, chips, sometimes salads, and maybe mashed potatoes. It's more of a potluck style family get to get together on most big holidays and it just varies in some foods per event. Like I didn't get to experience my first real thanksgiving dinner until I visited my uncle and aunt in Florida one year that goes through the whole cranberries, stuffing in the actual turkey, and the lot.

We eat the what I call 'normal' spread. :P Turkey and gravy, biscuits, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, corn, cranberry sauce morestuffI'mbrainfartingon BUT most importantly all of the pie! :D It's looking like we'll be doing a socially distant Thanksgiving this year with just our household.

Extra points to this guy please! #340304
