In two days, families will gather around tables full of food to celebrate the most American of holidays, Thanksgiving. The word holiday originates from the words holy day. What we think of as the "first" Thanksgiving was certainly a feast day, but it bore little resemblance to today's revelry and not just because they didn't play football. First, a day of thanksgiving in Colonial Massachusetts would have consisted of fasting and prayer so we know the "first Thanksgiving" was really a harvest festival.

By TERRY TALBERT Staff Writer Four-year-old BJ Gossard can rest easy now. His winged nemesis, Thomasina the wily wild turkey, was caught napping Saturday night and shipped off to a new home on a farm in the mountains of Washington County. BJ, who lives with his family in Cavetown, has been afraid of the bird ever since it flew its coop in a neighbor's backyard earlier this year, according to his mother. The boy claims the turkey chased him every time he tried to walk to his school bus stop.

Gladhill and Golden have been cooking at the Park-N-Dine for about 12 years and six years, respectively. Q: How did you learn to cook? Gladhill: To tell you the truth, I more or less taught myself.

She has at least one family up in arms. Well, almost. "I'd like to shoot him, if I had a gun," said Mary Gossard, failing to completely suppress a chuckle. Mary Gossard is the grandmother of 4-year-old William "BJ" Gossard, who is scared to death of Thom. BJ said he'd just like to see Thom, as she's called, "go away.

The blaze was mostly contained to the poults' bedding, although there was some smoke and heat damage to the building, which he estimated to be about 250 feet by 60 feet, Barnes said.

The French revolution of 1789 was bloody. The Republican revolution of 1994 was symbolic. The Egyptian revolution of 2011 unified dissimilar factions. But they all proved one thing: It's a lot easier to throw bombs from the outside than it is to actually govern. French revolutionaries championed liberty, virtue, universal voting rights, abolition of slavery and elimination of the death penalty. And to implement this agenda, they thought it was productive to guillotine everyone in sight, until they themselves were guillotined five years later.

Participating in the Hagerstown Community College Turkey Trot 5K has become almost as traditional for local runners as the turkey and stuffing they consume later Thanksgiving day. The 12th annual edition of the event Thursday morning had a record 1,370 finishers. “We're really happy with it. It's a race, but it's an event, too,” said race director Jaime Dick, who had live music and even an Elvis impersonator to help entertain the crowd. “We get so many people who say it's the only 5K they do all year.” The atmosphere was festive Thursday - and the field at the front was fast.

What began as a way for Mark and Jayne Metcalfe of Mercersburg, Pa., to give back to the community has grown into one of the largest, free Thanksgiving Day dinners in the area. “It's a way to give back to the community. There's a need with the economy the way it is. Plus we have a family that comes every year with 24 in their family. They have no houses big enough where they can gather for Thanksgiving dinner so they come here,” Jayne Metcalfe said Thursday. “And I don't like to eat alone, so my family has grown to 1,000,” she said with a chuckle.

Editor's note: This column originally ran in 2009. It's four days after Thanksgiving, and you got through it unscathed.  I hope you didn't overdo it on the yams, pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes and other dishes that cause many Americans to unknowingly eat as much as 3,000 calories in one sitting. The one good thing you can count on is that you'll have an abundance of turkey to use for the next week.  Turkey is a great source of protein, which is the only macronutrient that is broken down and used for building calorie-burning muscle.
