Thanksgiving 101: How Much Do You Know?
One of my (and my thighs’) favorite holidays is nearly here: Thanksgiving. Mmmm, it all just makes me feel warm and fuzzy (and full) inside. I can already see images of fluffy mashed potatoes drowning in a thick, sweet gravy…and that same gravy splattered all over the front of my empire-waisted dress. But whatev – totes worth it, especially since my mom loves doing my laundry during Thanksgiving break.
I haven’t met a single soul who doesn’t like to celebrate this gluttonous and family-focused holiday, and take to the couch for a long nap after a strenuous meal to the sounds of afternoon football. But beyond the cans of cranberries, Stove Top, and second helpings, does anyone really know the origins of Thanksgiving? Honestly, the last time I talked about the history of the holiday was while I was making hand turkeys in third grade.
So let’s do just that!
We want you to show us how much you know about Thanksgiving (beyond how to steal tastes of your mom’s homemade pumpkin pie without her noticing).
Since the only exciting thing to do today is count down the minutes until class is over and you can get the hell out of dodge, why not take the CollegeCandy Thanksgiving quiz? We won’t grade you or mock you (mostly because we knew none of this before we started Googling); this is purely for fun/packing procrastination/a party trick for entertaining your Thanksgiving dinner guests and showing them how smart you are.
Grab your #2 pencils and your graphing calculators, ladies! It’s time to get tested.
