Our pals across the pond are rather quiet this morning. Why? Because yesterday was the day of Thanksgiving – a chance for Americans to bunk off work, gorge themselves on turkey and swap presents with their loved ones. So basically, it’s Christmas Day but one month early. In honour of the holiday, let’s give thanks for those who shared their special moments via, umm, Twitter. Ooh, how we love a good nosey!
Rachel ‘Domestic Goddess’ Zoe posted this picture of her suitably chic dinner table strewn with autumn leaves. How lovely! Wonder if she’ll have us over for Crimbo...
Meanwhile, Jessica Alba was enjoying 'family time' - oh, to have those Alba genes - and Dita von Teese revealed she was busy ‘serving Cointreau Sidecars.’ Meanwhile, as an honorary New Yorker, Alexa Chung got in the spirit by celebrating her first Thanksgiving in a 'snazzy jumper' and 'stretchy jeans', natch.
As for the Obamas, Barack was at the White House applauding the plumpest turkey we ever did see. Jeals! Although his daughters don't look so keen...
Over in LA, Kim Kardashian was helping the homeless by serving up some delissshious-looking gruel at Mission's charity dinner.
Zoe Saldana and Jennifer Love Hewitt joined her too, wearing matchy-matchy red aprons. Yep, there’s no chance of coal in their Christmas stockings.
And, of course, the legendary Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade was in full swing with ginormous festive floats and super-cute Hello Kitty balloons filling the New York sky. Elle Macpherson, Avril Lavigne and Mary J Blige were spotted amongst the revelers, wrapped up in their winter gear and posing on pumpkins – as you do. We're LOVING that floppy hat, Elle!
What better way to round-off the celebrations than with Lady Gaga's rendition of 'Marry The Night' for what Mother Monster calls 'A Very Gaga Thanksgiving'. Happy holidays one and all!
