Happy Thanksgiving: An Impish Alfred Hitchcock Carves Your Holiday Turkey!

Happy Thanksgiving: An Impish Alfred Hitchcock Carves Your Holiday Turkey!

Photography by: John Rawlings, NYC (1956)

Pick a Hitchcock of opulence rather than corpulence,
just pleasingly plump, with a snug silhouette,
To embellish the board when the places are set.
For the ultimate test, more closely examine it.
The Hitchcock supreme has a wide streak of ham in it.

Thanksgiving: A Remembrance of Holiday Celebrations and Traditions

Thanksgiving: A Remembrance of Holiday Celebrations and Traditions

Thanksgiving has always been a very special holiday, stuffed with traditions observed and beloved, for many people, since early childhood. The Thanksgiving turkey, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the guests from far and near, even the quick nap on the sofa before the start of the Big Game, they all help to create a holiday experience that hasn’t varied much from generation to generation. This Thanksgiving piece presents a video about the origins of the Thanksgiving Holiday, as well as a video of the 2009 Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.

My Thoughts and Wishes to All for the Coming Year: Happy Holidays!

My Thoughts and Wishes to All for the Coming Year: Happy Holidays!

Remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange you said everything changed
You felt as if you’d just woke up
And you said “this is the first day of my life
I’m glad I didn’t die before I met you
But now I don’t care I could go anywhere with you
And I’d probably be happy”
