Can a turkey tweet?

6 10 2012

Thanksgiving is here (for those of us in Canada) and of course the social media is all a-twitter. Yes indeed Twitter is a great source of all sorts of Thanksgiving news. More than just good wishes for the holiday, there are tweets about traffic, health stories, recipes and advertisements. I’ve collected a few here to get you in the spirit of the holiday… if you haven’t yet joined the crowd.

Thanksgiving food safety

Ottawa Health tweeted to warn about the dangers of feasting on undercooked meats. Their article gives some quick facts and then tips for making sure that your delicious meal is safe for everyone to consume.


The Vega Team gave a link to a whole selection of vegan thanksgiving recipes on Pinterest. This pumpkin cheesecake caught my eye!

Pumpkin cheesecake pinned by Sarah Dougherty has that characteristic Thanksgiving appeal

Pumpkin not your thing? Style at Home suggests a classic apple pie in their tweet.


Putting the “giving” in Thanksgiving

The Union Gospel Mission reminds everyone to build community and contribute to those in need this season. UGM is an urban relief center serving Thanksgiving dinners to hundreds this season.

The Salvation Army also gives people some ideas of how to reach out this weekend. In some ways, giving is a true sign of being thankful.

And the “thanks”

And of course, the heartwarming #thingsIamthankfulfor. Truly, it is a delight to read through these posts and realize how truly blessed we are to live in this country.

So what are you thankful for this year?  If you need some help, check out Twitter as just one way to be reminded of all the blessings you have.

Thanksgiving is hands down the most boring holiday for me. Someone, somewhere needs to throw in some costumes, magical creatures, or something. This is just way too dry. That cheesecake, however, sounds pretty awesome.

I don’t know people always reserve turkey, cheesecake, pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes etc. for Thanksgiving. My family’s not big on Thanksgiving at all. Why wait for a holiday to eat holiday food?

PS. I tried to make a pumpkin cheesecake and it tasted like cardboard. So that was a fail.

I laughed so hard from your blog post title. It might have been the food coma I was experiencing from pretending to eat a holiday dinner, but really it’s the alliteration!
