Thanksgiving

I,along with the staff of the Bytes Estate, wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.

Americans all over the country have different traditions on how to celebrate the holiday. Most people have turkey, some don't. Some have huge feasts, some have only a few guests.

I thought this year I would share how the Bytes Estate celebrates Thanksgiving.

The Saturday before Thanksgiving I take a trip to the turkey farm to pick out my turkeys for dinner.
I decided to have a smaller feast this year and only need three turkeys. Guess which three were delivered on Monday?


Fast forward to Thanksgiving Day...

The festivities begin at 12PM with drinks and appetizers leading into the first football game at 12:30PM. Dinner begins promptly at 1PM with turkey and all the trimmings prepared by Jeeves.. It can get kind of loud with one hundred guests.

  
 Then after dinner and between football games a reenactment of the First Thanksgiving is performed by me and my guests. I am kind of a history buff...I play the head pilgrim.


Then it's time to watch the 4:30PM football game and have dessert. A grand selection of pies that my staff baked that my guests can not resist. Pumpkin, apple, cherry...

 

And then to make the night interesting.. a game of Twister.

 
 
Then it time for the guests to go home and time for me to relax with a nice bottle of wine and drift off to sleep in my recliner. Don't worry about the dishes.. Jeeves is on top of it.

 
Well, that's how I celebrate Thanksgiving. Feel free to comment on your traditions.
 Happy Thanksgiving!!
