The results of this are funny enough (WTF MAINE?! SIDE SALAD??!), but people finding out that their Thanksgiving meals are not the Thanksgiving meal in the comments is even funnier. :lol:

What kind of sociopath eats mashed potatoes on Thanksgiving? Sure, they’re great on date night but on Thanksgiving, they’re just filler taking up precious space that could be filled with cornbread dressing & candied yams!

@karmatic__yt
What kind of house do you live in that doesn’t serve mashed potatoes on thanksgiving? What fucking alternate reality did twitter take me to this time?

Am I right in my take that Thanksgiving food is the main meal of the year in the US? Or does Christmas get equal footing?

Thanksgiving is just the only one that's mostly food-based. Christmas is probably equal in terms of the food, but it's got all that other stuff associated with it too.

What's weird to me is that a lot of people have the same things for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I always thought this was weird too. We always had basically the same meal at Thanksgiving and Christmas, which is bad enough in Canada, where Thanksgiving is in Oct. But even weirder in the US when the two are only about a month apart.

Some years we'd have ham at Christmas instead of Turkey, but all the rest would still be exactly the same. Even down to the "stuffing" which would become dressing, but would taste exactly the same.

Thank you! Thanksgiving style dinners are OK once a year, but I don't think I'd want it more than that, even six months apart, much less ONE.

My family was never super-fussy about traditions, which I am very much grateful for. So my siblings and I have mostly made up our own rules for Christmas dinners and change them up sometimes. I try to make it something that's too big a PITA to do regularly so it's exclusively a special occasion thing. For the past few years, that's been a super-laborious lasagna.

It sort of depends on your family, I guess. In my family, Thanksgiving is like a family reunion, and everybody brings food. The kids play football outside in the morning, then we eat, and then we watch football on TV. At least when I was growing up.

Christmas is smaller and more personal, where the immediate family gets together, opens presents, and then eats a big meal.

Now I want stuffing and lasagna. :carbs:

And my family did a turkey Thanksgiving style dinner on any occasion (Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, birthdays), though not as elaborate as any of the American friends I've gained over the years would do it.

I believe by official rules that we now own that part of Michigan. Sorry, you said it was Canada and we're taking it.

In my family, Christmas is unambiguously the better meal.

We have standard Thanksgiving stuff mostly (some variation from year-to-year on side dishes, but always turkey, stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, potatoes, pumpkin pie).

For Christmas, we have about half the items on a traditional Swedish Christmas smörgåsbord (aka a julbord) and a few random other things. And then a bunch of Swedish and Italian cookies and pastries. Ham and homemade Swedish meatballs are just unambiguously tastier than Thanksgiving turkey, and Swedish saffron buns, ginger snaps and cinnamon buns are better than pumpkin pie, so I've always preferred Christmas in terms of food.
