This Thursday, it is Time to give Thanks… for Roast Turkey

Aakanksha posted on 24 November

While it was a hard-fought victory against the terrain and native people, the Pilgrims who arrived in America had plenty to celebrate back in 1621. And in that spirit of giving thanks, the tradition continues, though now, at least for us here, it could well be Turkey Day. But we all have gratitude to show for something, and we think it's a great idea to feast while we're at it. So here's were you can head to this Thanksgiving.
