Food Network had a float on Thanksgiving (Tom the Turkey!) and put the "celebrity chefs" Claire Robinson, Sunny Anderson, and Anne Burrell on it. Aside: Robinson's "pilgrim" outfit = contextual but awkward.
Tim Hayward for the Guardian: "Perhaps the most baffling part of Thanksgiving for a Brit is the whole idea of having a festival as big, complicated and frankly bloody tiresome to organise as Christmas a mere month before the big day." Also calls pumpkin pie the "winner in the category of most imaginative use of biomass in a dessert."
