I had no idea there was such a thing as Hanksgiving until I ran across this “make your own Hanksgiving turkey” post over at the Decider yesterday. From their piece:
“No one can tell for sure when the first Hanksgiving happened. Some say it happened when families across America basked in the glory of Tom Hanks in Bosom Buddies. Others whisper that it didn’t become a real holiday until Hanks took home his first Academy Award. Still some sage old men tell of a strange mystical event, somewhere remote, like where they have Burning Man, where all the characters that Tom Hanks ever brought to life met, broke bread, and brought one moment of perfect peace to the Earth. And then there are the people who say it’s just a dumb Internet joke that went too far.”
What a hilarious alternative to the traditional Thanksgiving holiday. Apparently, the way to celebrate is a Tom Hanks movie marathon. Makes total sense to me and it actually sounds pretty fun. At any rate, whether you’re celebrating the old fashioned way or with good old T. Hanks have a great holiday weekend!
