Thanksgiving is all about family and appreciation for our lives and the good things in them. You know it’s not a very mysterious holiday when the biggest mystery is why we have to eat turkey. Heresy, I know, but I really don’t like turkey. Luckily, my Thanksgiving family this year is serving prime rib and jerk chicken. So here is one thing I’m thankful for — my very good friends with whom we are dining on Thursday.
I like mysteries so I decided to look for a Thanksgiving ghost story. I Googled “Thanksgiving paranormal stories” and you’d be surprised at how many turned up. I was kind of hoping for a “ghosts of Pilgrims past” kind of thing but I struck out. Unless you count this story about the haunted Pilgrim State Hospital. I did find this, however, and it could be interpreted as a “ghost of turkeys past” thing. You decide!
Because many of us will see a long weekend over Thanksgiving, I am going to share with you a couple of lists with Thanksgiving mystery book suggestions: Killer Feast: 5 Delicious Thanksgiving Mysteries, and Thanksgiving mystery books. Let me know if any of them are worth recommending.
Finally, I’ll share with you my cartoon about Turkey fairy tales.
