Happy Thanksgiving from Monsters and Mayhem!
In celebration, I’ve included one of my all-time favorite scenes from the Peanuts’ holiday specials. Growing up before TiVo, the Peanuts holiday specials were “event TV” and we made sure we were home to see them. This scene, in which Snoopy and Woodstock help Linus and Charlie Brown make a Thanksgiving “feast” never fails to make me smile, probably because it looks a little like the chaos in my own kitchen as we prepare our meal. Now, I’ve never accidentally put someone’s ear in the toaster, but my husband, mother-in-law and I managed to drop a 22 pound turkey on a garage floor (long story). We picked it up, dusted it off, and didn’t tell anyone until the next year! Yeah, my family’s pretty awesome.
Enjoy the video, and let me know if you have any wild/fun/weird family traditions for Thanksgiving. I love those kinds of stories.
I hope all is well with you and yours and that you have a wonderful holiday! (For my Canadian friends, belated Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!)
