By the looks of it, you've made it to the prairies.
Hitchhiking in 1960-something is pretty great, right?
To this day it remains a holiday both in the U.S. and Canada.
In the U.S. the fourth Thursday of November was set in 1941 by the federal government. In Canada, Thanksgiving takes place on the second Monday in October, steeped in the tradition of celebrating the year's harvest.
In 1960-something, you'll be served the traditional homemade dinner, and here's the difference between then and 2018 - everything will be made from scratch ...
- Turkey with stuffing
- Green bean casserole
- Gravy made with the turkey's giblets - the innards - the liver, heart and gizzard
- Mashed potatoes
- Pumpkin pie in a flaky crust with freshly whipped cream
And, of course, a molded recipe made of gelatin-encased ham and vegetables, for instance.
Gelatin based recipes will all but disappear by 2018.
Just so you know, over 4,000 calories are normally consumed on Thanksgiving Day.
Now all you have to do is enjoy yourself with the people you've met in 1960-something ... and give thanks.
