Thanksgiving Survey

Tonight's the first night of Hanukkah, but I'm spending it in the car on my way to the homestead for our usual epic Thanksgiving dinners. I know I won't have time tomorrow for my traditional holiday-run-reflection post, so this mini post is a tide-over to set the mood. 

This mini questionnaire was stolen from Beth at SUAR, and if you don't read her blog yet, I have to question your sanity. 

To do: Cut and paste below into comments and add your answers. Feel free to cut/paste onto your blog for fun.

1. How old do you have to be to move up from the kids’ table? 

Depending on the number of kids, old enough to "behave"...but at my Thanksgivings we had so many kids, we were happy to have our own table!

2. Stuff the turkey or cook stuffing separately? (aka salmonella or not?)

No stuffing. It allows for regular and gluten free stuffing, and a non-contaminated turkey!

3. Who sits at the head of the table?

My parents. 

4. Pumpkin, pecan, apple pie?

Chocolate pecan. 

5. What the hell is mince meat?

I'm not sure, but grammatically speaking, shouldn't it be minced meat?

6. Is it okay to play Christmas music on Thanksgiving?

No. Wait until December. And preferably out of my earshot. I kind of hate Christmas music. 

7. In five words or less, worst Thanksgiving memory?

Was 6, tasted beer. BLEGH. 

8. Speaking of leftovers. Who gets dibs on them? 

The host, starving college students, and starving teachers/young adult children. 

9. Worst Thanksgiving food?

This is my favorite holiday because all the food is good! But sometimes a good dish gets messed up. Lumpy thanks. 

10. Best Thanksgiving quick joke?

This is embarrassing...I honestly can't think of one. 

Share a Thanksgiving joke in the comments!

Answer a question or two...or all!

Have a wonderful, gratitude-heavy, fun-filled day!



  1. Happy Hanukkah! And Happy Thanksgiving!!! I hope your Holidays are wonderful.

    1. Thanks, lady! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  2. LOL.....I can't think of a Thanksgiving joke either.....I suck at jokes.

    I definitely LOVE Pumpkin pie, stuff my turkey, I am a fan of ALL Thanksgiving food! ;D

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving & Hanukkah!!!
    p.s. I will have to check out Beth's Blog :)

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who couldn't think of a joke!

      You'll love SUAR. It's so hilarious and REAL.

  3. I have no Thanksgiving jokes either but I think "gobble wobble" is a funny thing to say :)

    Minced meat sounds disgusting and I'm glad I have no idea what it is!

    Hope you had an awesome Turkey Trot this morning!

    1. Haha, gobble wobble is like a joke in itself!

      Hope you had a great day!

  4. My Grandma tried to get me to try mince meat pie yesterday! The closest I got to tasting it was smelling it. It smelled like meat and applesauce. I skipped it and had some pumpkin and coconut cream!

    1. That definitely sounds like a weird combo. My mom is threatening to make it for us next year! I think I'll pass on it.

  5. Awesome survey!
    I love Chocolate PIE - YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM! :)
    Hope you had a beautiful Thanksgiving! oxoxo
