This game would be fun if you cut the time down to one minute - then there would be a bit of a challenge to it! I had over 9 minutes left after I got all the answers. :)

is this based on fact?

Accept 'potatoes' for mashed potatoes. Also, maybe it;s a regional thing, but ham? No salad or beans?
Nov 12th, 2009 at 22:47 GMT
Potatoes should also be accepted for mashed potatoes. Green bean casserole should also be accepted for green beans. Yams should also be accepted for sweet potatoes (I know they aren't exactly the same, but some people have either.)

ok...no brussels sprouts, and since when has ham ever been a thanksgiving meal? They call it turkey day for a reason.
Nov 16th, 2009 at 02:48 GMT
Well everybody's Thanksgiving is a little different, but I was able to get all these in a couple minutes. A pretty standard selection of foods here I think, although ham is a little questionable.

Damnit this quiz is making me hungry. And I've heard of people eating ham instead of turkey which is why I guessed it.

We eat ham almost as often as turkey on Thanksgiving where I'm from. I live in the south though.

As a southern boy, I feel really dumb for missing Pecan Pie.

Eh, okay quiz, but everybody has their own traditions and foods they eat on Thanksgiving. Needs more clues.

Ham isn't traditional and I may add neither might be green beans. "Traditional", being back in the Pilgrim day meant no green beans since beans would be an earlier harvest than the fall. Yams or sweet potatoes being hardy tubers ARE a fall time vegetable and as such could be seen as "traditional".

Am I the only one who has corn on Thanksgiving?
May 12th, 2010 at 17:11 GMT
Corn bread, mince meat pie; and whipped cream (topping for the pies).

Isn't succotash a thanksgiving food?
Oct 6th, 2010 at 02:28 GMT
@andmybirdcansing: it definitely is with my family in the south, but out here in California nobody even knows what succotash is. It's a regional thing. Also, now I'm really hungry.

joe amrhein--if you're going to go back to the Pilgrim days, then turkey isn't traditional, either, nor are most other foods that are now considered traditions. Most likely the meat served was venison. Tradition does not have to date that far back. You've got to use some common sense about these things.

good quiz i also have a thanksgiving quiz myself try it out too feel free to comment and rate
Nov 24th, 2010 at 21:31 GMT
What about rolls?
Nov 26th, 2010 at 22:45 GMT
Actually, turkey didn't become a popular Thanksgiving food until after World War II, when American soldiers were fed turkey on Thanksgiving, and they kept the traidtion after the war. Before that, ham was very popular on Thanksgiving.

With all the regional/familial Thanksgiving traditions, this really isn't a fair quiz. My Texas family's tradition includes turkey, ham, stuffing/dressing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, broccoli casserole, cranberry sauce, giblets, gravy, and (at the very least) a pumpkin pie and banana pudding. A Sporcler from Connecticut is bound to have a different one.
Nov 16th, 2011 at 21:31 GMT
(Being Texas, of course, my uncle owns a barbecue house and the meat is bound to be smoked.)

You should accept yams for sweet potatoes.
