Something I've noticed about festivals, the more crowded they become the less there is to go around!

Our big "food holidays" are Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, in that order, with the last two being Christian observances.

I really do need to get a parrot. Beagle doesn't balance well on my shoulder. She also hates her eye patch. She can talk, but she speaks a different language.

LOL Dawwgluver!

My daughter and son-in-law know each other's FB passwords, and she recently went in to his and changed his language to piratespeak. He was 'aaaarghing' all over the place.

Apologies for misspelling your name, Dawgluver. My fingers got carried away and added an extra "w" in there. That'll teach me to multitask while I'm on the computer, hopefully....

How many Americans living & working in the USA, actually celebrate these food holidays ?

Would like to hear from those, who do celebrate and participate and how do you participate; via social circle, kids schools, or at Market Tastings ? At Home ?
They are all motivated by marketing associations, motivated by commercial greed.

Americans often celebrate national and religious holidays by feasting. Fasting is not very common in USA except within a few religious/ethnic groupsl

On the other hand, any day is a good excuse for a feast or for a good dinner. There's 365 of them.
