Superman flies high in the 1940 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Superman stands 80-feet high, and his chest is 23-feet across.

If you are like us, you’ve already filled your belly with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce. While I like fresh, homemade cranberry sauce, it was my grandfather who taught me you can appreciate cranberry sauce from a can. I also remember that after eating at my grandparents house as a kid we would all pass out in a Triptafen induced coma, until my grandmother called us all back to the table for pumpkin pie. I’m thankful that I had those times with them all those years ago. Today, I’m thankful for so many things (some of them you can hear in our Major Spoilers Podcast Network shows this week).

From all of us, to all of you, here’s hoping your holiday is a fun one.  And if you live outside the U.S.A. take a moment to give thanks to all the good things that have happened in 2013.

      It’s supposed to have something to do with pilgrims(not Scott) and Native Americans celebrating the first years of not dieing, but it wasn’t really an annual thing until one of our earlier presidents finally declared it a national(read: government) holiday.

      There’s also a Canadian Thanksgiving in mid-October, but I’m not really sure what the differences are other than the day of celebration.
