1) The expression of gratitude, esp. to God
– he offered prayers in thanksgiving for his safe arrival
– he described the service as a thanksgiving
2) (in North America) An annual national holiday marked by religious observances and a traditional meal including turkey. The holiday commemorates a harvest festival celebrated by the Pilgrims in 1621, and is held in the US on the fourth Thursday in November. A similar holiday is held in Canada, usually on the second Monday in October
3) A day where the Nicholson-Manger-Kisas clan joins together to eat a traditional meal that commemorates a harvest festival celebrated by the Pilgrims in 1621 and discusses conception and ovulation.
Yes. I did say conception and ovulation.
It seems that lately, during holiday dinners, the conversation somehow ends up on conception, whether immaculate or regular (Christmas Eve was the toast to immaculate conception), ovulation and the production of children. My sister the nurse said a family of her patients is keeping her in business because they’re having their 10th child. That led us to the Duggar family having their 20th. Which, in turn, led us to discussing how gross the Duggar wife’s uterus must be and planning sex around ovulation times so you have a higher chance of one gender over the other.
And this was without a drop of alcohol.
