The second link works......

In fact, Chinadaily also has some information about  the Thanksgiving day.
Here it is : http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/lan ... /content_735755.htm

i think it's only a big deal in the US/Canada

it's just a day that the whole family is supposed to unite.

everyone prepares some dishes so the feast is rather huge compared to most dinners.  things like turkey (i've cooked a 22lb bird before ;-), brown sugar ham, sweet potatos, stuffing, etc, are pretty common for american thanksgiving dinners.      i think some families cook duck (probably mroe so on christmas), but i won't eat that crap...ducks to me are like dogs in that they shouldn't be eaten...there're just decoration for the lake. ;-)

it's not a shopping holiday, but the next day, that friday is and is called black friday...it's normally the day that most retail sales occurr...sales which are usualy used for Christmas.

oh, there're normally two footbal games shown every year (can we get the effin detroit lions off TV this year!!??) on thanksgiving as well.  but good news football fans, we get 3 games now!!!  


any american outthere got turkey recipes?  i've, like the good meatatarian i am, have cooked a bird wtih bacon slices wrapped around it and basted it in sticks of butter...then take off the bacon slices at the end to brown the sucker.  keeps the bird nice and moist.
