A 'Hunger Games' Thanksgiving Thursday 17 November, 2011
Ahh…Thanksgiving…a time to show how grateful you are for all the good in your life by gathering around a table — or TV — with your loved ones and gorging yourself until you can’t move.
In Panem — a starving country which seems to have forgotten its heritage — Thanksgiving is probably only a distant memory. But let’s imagine for a second that it’s not… How would our favorite Hunger Games characters celebrate this day of gluttony?
Perri at Movies.com asked us — and several other fan sites — this very question. Who would attend the ultimate Panemian Turkey Day dinner? And what would they bring to the feast?
Fireside Chat co-host Savanna, unaware of the Seneca Crane’s Beard sensation that would sweep the Internet after the trailer premiere, decided to invite the Head Gamemaker himself:
Cornucopia Filled with Festive Fruits and Vegetables from Seneca Crane – Savanna of The Hunger Games Fireside Chat
Okay, let’s face it; I really only want Seneca Crane at this Thanksgiving dinner because Wes Bentley is cute. But since President Snow is in attendance, it DOES make sense that his Head Gamemaker would also receive an invitation to the party, right? Since none of the other Capitol guests seem to be bringing anything edible, I’m going to go ahead and assign Seneca to decoration duty as well and charge him with bringing the quintessential Thanksgiving centerpiece: a cornucopia filled with mini pumpkins, mini gourds, and ornamental corn. Sure, some of the attendees might find this piece of decor to be a little offensive, but you can’t argue with tradition.
