Post-Thanksgiving Friday Five

Ah, the day after Thanksgiving--groan! Fortunately, I love Thanksgiving leftovers.

Thanksgiving is the American holiday when the greatest number of people travel somewhere else to celebrate. I am posting this from my son’s home in Minnesota where we are recovering from the food shopping and the preparations and the meal and the clean up. It is difficult to think of anything requiring much energy today, and I am enjoying my sweet baby granddaughter, so I will keep it simple. For those of you not in the USA, I apologize for the nationalistic tone of this Friday Five!

1. Did you go elsewhere for the day, or did you have visitors at your place instead? How was it?
I stayed at home. But Bearded Scritcher's mother came over. I hid the whole time, so it was fine!

2. Main course: If it was the turkey, the whole turkey, and nothing but the turkey, was it prepared in an unusual way? Or did you throw tradition to the winds and do something different?
I followed my own tradition. I had kibble, with fresh tap water, and Greenies for dessert. But GoG gave me a Thanksgiving treat-Squid and sardines, she called it. The juice was okay, but I didn't like the rest of it much.

3. Other than the meal, do you have any Thanksgiving customs that you observe every year?
I always wake up early, have a thorough wash, go back to bed. Then I get up, count noses-to make sure everyone is there, eat a snack, and sleep until Lunch.

4. The day after Thanksgiving is considered a major Christmas shopping day by most US retailers. Do you go out bargain hunting and shop ‘till you drop, or do you stay indoors with the blinds closed? Or something in between?
I spend the whole day under the bed, napping, and playing string.

5. Let the HOLIDAY SEASON commence! When will your Christmas decorations go up?
When GoG says it isn't too cold to stand outside, and she and String Puller and String Plucker have free time. They put up this really big thing that looks like a tree, but it isn't. They put all sorts of hangy and blinky things on it. They make very nice toys. Why do they say "No, don't play with those," and "They could break-don't touch them!" Bad humans.
