Happy Thanksgiving! If you’ve already sat down for the traditional feast of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, pumpkin pie, and a loss by the Detroit Lions, then by all means bon appetit. But if you haven’t eaten yet, and would prefer this year’s menu be a tad more traditional, here are ten types of food that the Pilgrims likely ate at their first Thanksgiving.
Even though the American version of Thanksgiving is by far the most famous of all the Fall Harvests, it’s far from the only one out there. Almost every culture has or has had a Thanksgiving-style celebration of their very own. Here are ten of the most festive.
I hate to be a New Years Eve party pooper, but I thought you should know that approximately half of you will make New Years resolutions today, but only 8% of you will successfully achieve them (statisticbrain.com). In the interest of turning these dismal results around, I’ve come up with some alternative resolutions for you […]
Happy New Year!…maybe. It depends on where you live, really. There are literally billions of people around the world who celebrate different New Year’s, based either on their country’s cultural calendar, or based on their religion’s calendar year. So when the ball drops in the Big Apple, not everyone may be celebrating. The following list […]
Christmas is a time for joy, but the creators of these decorations are doing their best to induce confusion and rage. If anybody gives you one of these as a present, Santa and Jesus agree that it’s alright for you to temporarily forego the Christmas spirit, and give them the gift of a backhanded slap. […]
Almost every single day of the calendar has something you’re supposed to be aware of, while you go about your business of pretending to work while reading TopTenz lists. That’s 365 separate things you’re supposed to remember. Well, screw that noise! You might as well only celebrate the ten we deem important, because the best […]
I got a temp job in retail before Halloween, which was enough time to get the basics before the Christmas season started. And with the Christmas season came listening to the same awful Christmas songs day after day. Yeah, I’d probably get sick of The Night Santa Went Crazy or Snow Miser – Heat Miser […]
Every December (or more often, late November) radio listeners are bombarded with themes of merriment, prosperity, and togetherness, written about in traditional holiday music. It’s uplifting for the easily uplifted, but a joyless purgatory for those who dread the upcoming holiday season, a frostbitten limbo we’re forced to endure until the Christmas tree has dried […]
Editor’s note: Republishing this as a new list for 2012. It is one of my favorite Christmas lists. Hope you enjoy it. Who doesn’t love the time-honored tradition of having their child pictured on Santa’s lap? Nothing is more cute than to see little Timmy or Sally smiling brightly on Santa’s lap while sharing their […]
Who gets to decide the occasions we should celebrate? We all know Christmas, Thanksgiving, Memorial Day, and even Columbus Day, and we know what such holidays entail (alcohol, food (sandwich day?), no work/school/mail). But why can’t we select, customize, and personalize days of the year based on we truly feel warrant an annual commemoration? Well believe it […]
Halloween is one of the greatest days of the year. When you’re a kid, there’s nothing better than being encouraged to go out and stuff your face with as much candy as you can get your hands on. Halloween is fun for adults too, as handing out candy is a nostalgic reminder of our youth. […]
America is not a perfect country. Like all nations, it is a collection of human beings, and human beings are notorious for occasionally making bad decisions, being selfish, or otherwise simply blowing it. However, there is a lot right about this country, though often we get so caught up in the rhetoric, that we miss […]
No wonder so many children are terrified of Saint Nick. If any of these Santa Claus characters were part of my childhood I would be screaming and crying not to sit on his lap too. You may want to take your kids from the room before viewing this list of the Top 10 Most Unintentionally […]
It’s that time of the year again. The time of the year when traditions are carried out faithfully and decorations are mounted precisely where they were a year ago. If you look close, you might even see contrasting dust layers form a sort of farmer’s tan where holiday spirit has offset natural progressions. The holiday […]
It’s hard to tell, with Lifetime Movie Network showing so many OTHER movies, which ones are the actual films that Lifetime produces or distributes in the U.S. That’s what research and the internet are for. Thankfully, the best ones (or worst ones, depending on how you look at it) that I wanted to put on […]
