11 Unique Things You’ll Only Hear at a Minnesota Thanksgiving
Many of us will be getting together with family and friends across the Bold North for Thanksgiving again this year. And, just like that turkey dinner, these uniquely-Minnesota phrases will also likely make an appearance!
The Thanksgiving holiday is a uniquely American tradition, one filled with tons of food, and gathering together to give thanks with family and friends, first held in the late fall after the pilgrims brought in a successful harvest for the year.
The full Thanksgiving experience is on-tap for most of us this year, after a couple of years when health officials urged us to forgo traveling for the holidays and host or attend a scaled-back celebration with only a few close family members-- those in your 'bubble.' (Remember THAT phrase?!?)
But this year, just about all of us seem getting back to a more normal Thanksgiving. And that means there are several phrases you'll probably ONLY hear (or perhaps say yourself) if you find yourself at a Thanksgiving dinner here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.
Even if your plans include traveling to a location outside the North Star State, there's still a pretty good possibility these Minnesota phrases will be a part of your Thanksgiving holiday somehow. How many of these phrases are YOU familiar with?
Of course, after Thanksgiving, next up is Christmas, right? It's a holiday filled with nostalgia, especially as we look forward to getting our holiday celebrations back to normal. So keep scrolling to take a look at which toy was the big thing during Christmas the year you were born!
