Fibbing Friday 27th November: my responses

Thanks Frank.
Here are my fibs this week

  1. Why is it traditional to eat turkey for Thanksgiving dinner? (In the US, at least.)
    It’s better than the alternative of them eating you.
  2. What is “Festivus”?
    It’s a game for dogs with a lisp.
  3. Why does Hanukka (or Chanuka, if you prefer) last for eight days?
    It’s all to do with symmetry and balance.
  4. Why does Kwanzaa last seven days?
    Because on day 8 not many people remember very much, let alone what day it is.
  5. According to the song, there are twelve days of Christmas, so why do most people only observe Christmas for one day?
    If you’ve got kids, even that’s one day too many!!
  6. Why does Canada have Thanksgiving in October?~
    They are in a different time zone.
  7. What is Childermas?
    In an alternative universe, the children have the headache of arranging the festivities.
  8. In the US, why is the Friday after Thanksgiving known as “Black Friday”?
    Too many hangovers.
  9. What is “Boxing Day”?
    A free for all punch up between adults and children as to who has custody of the remote or who plays the latest computer games.
  10. What is “Saturnalia”?
    Wishful thinking of being on another planet until it’s all over.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
