We don't have Thanksgiving down here, but it is Eid Al-Adha*!
Which I think might serve as an equivalent to your Thanksgiving, in the context. I generally enjoy My time and revel in eating meat, lots and lots of Meat. The main theme is like any other feast, a polite excuse for indulgence, going out, getting together with relatives and friends and generally enjoy life, since this is my default mode (the enjoying life part) there would be no big differences.
I feel sorry for the innocent animals who are being slaughtered because "Allah said so." And I feel it is more like "Butchers Feast" since they're the ones truly benefits in the long run! Rivers of blood from innocent animals shall run for four days, truly, "Fuck Islam."
Aside from that, I think I'll stop here lest I go beyond "off-topic."
Since I feel I already did, this is for Diwanna, try Basbosa for dessert!
