The Five Worst Thanksgivings in History

PilgrimIf you’re dreading your family Thanksgiving, it could be worse! John Marr identifies the five worst Thanksgivings in history, which included the day the Ku Klux Klan was founded, and Reno’s “Thanksgiving Day Massacre” in 1980. (“Priscilla Ford had a long history of psychiatric problems and bizarre behavior…”)

Also included? The day 22 people were killed in 1900 at the Big Game between football rivals Stanford and Berkeley, and a story which concludes “The gunmen immediately started blasting away with shotguns and assault rifles…”

Usually on Thanksgiving, “Good old all-American chaos is down,” writes Marr sardonically. “But not entirely out.”

    The worst Thanksgiving is the one when I got really drunk from Banana Daiquiris and blew banana tinged turkey dinner puree’ all over the bathroom. 

    Enjoy your holiday…

    Hopefully I die on Thanksgiving, so that I can finally be thankful for something.

    I’ve often thought the Thanksgiving a few days after the JFK assassination must have been a real downer.
