Thanksgiving is obviously about giving thanks and showing what you’re grateful for. It is also about spending time with your family. But… whenever most people think about Thanksgiving around here, they think of all the good food they’re gonna get to eat. Food plays a big part in the holidays. Everyone gathers around a table with their family, eating their favorite foods. That’s something everyone looks forward to for the holidays. Everyone has their favorite Thanksgiving foods that they look forward to every year. Some are specific and some just like the basic turkey and dressing. Some, though, can get a little bit too specific. They can also get a little weird.

 Some of the most common Thanksgiving foods in America are turkey, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, stuffing, gravy, dressing, and much more. Some of the most common desserts people have for Thanksgiving normally include cakes and pies. They include ones like pecan pie, apple pie, carrot cake, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin pie, cranberry pie, and more. Some people have weirder food for Thanksgiving than just normal holiday foods. The weirdest things I’ve found that get served in America are strawberry pretzel salad, frog eye salad, ambrosia salad, jello salad, and brussel sprout soda. Those are only a few of the weird foods I found, there are probably plenty where that came from of weird foods people eat for Thanksgiving.
