Hey Everyone,

Traditionally, Thanksgiving is a time when families gather together for warmth and gratitude, but let's imagine a darker, more mysterious side to the holiday.

20. The Forgotten Feast:

This list was created with the assistance of ChatGPT. I found all twenty tales to be very bizarre yet interesting.

We're not done yet.

Let's play a game. Pick a numbered tale and leave a comment. It could be one word or in Partha's case 2000 words. Hahahaha!

For example, I picked number 8 : I ate a slice of pie already, made a wish and I'm still phat. Look at cover image.

Tasters please don't overeat!πŸ™‚

Thank you for reading. And, Happy Thanksgiving Thursday.

Your strange stories remind me of a book I'm reading about a mysterious hermit who lived in the woods in a cabin he built himself and made dire predictions about the future of humanity. You've provided some great ideas for someone wanting to write a dark story.

Personally, I'm drawn to the cranberry bog, and what secrets it might reveal.

Lots of ideas for someone who wants to write about the mythical and macabre.

Yep yep yep, Fran.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Also, all commissions go to baker after. your happy death, Dave. Hahahaha.
