what is Thanksgiving Day in the USA and does it have anything to do with Xbox?

not old boring monopoly, but Killer Instinkt etc. It has something to do with oversized turkeys right?

Thanksgiving is 28 November. It is less than a week after the X1's release.

The day after is arguably more important because it is the biggest shopping day of the year.

Thanks for a normal answer to an only slightly funny topic.

Back in the days when the Founding Fathers decided to start good old US of A, they discovered that they had no food.
This was before immigrants from Mexico decided to cross the border, so they had no fastfood hamburgers, so they had to go out hunting.
Since the Second Ama...amenda... amm... important law didn't exist yet, they had no guns for hunting.
So they picked random things and decided to hunt in the woods.
Every animal escaped and every item were useless, until they found a turkey.
...the bird, not the country...
Since Abraham Lincoln was tired of carrying the old Xbox, he simply threw it at the bird before anybody else could do anything.
It died instantly, and they had food for the day.
Lincoln was thankful that he didn't have to carry the Xbox again, so they decided to call the day for Thanksgiving Day.
And the day after, they went to town to buy a new Xbox. Since Lincoln was the president, he got it cheaper, and he decided to declare the day after Thanksgiving for the biggest shopping day of the year.

I believe this holiday has to do with when our ancestors double dealed the indians, stole their food then genocided them all. Good times.

Pros: The pills were there.

It's true, I read it on a cereal box once.
