What American holidays are identified with food?


Almost all. As with most holidays everywhere in the world, US holidays
are often associated with special food. Thanksgiving may be the most
food-centric day, but Birthdays require cake&ice cream; Hallowe'en
means candy; 4th of July is for picnics and cookouts; Easter means
ham or lamb (+ the HB egg thing); Christmas dinner requires a feast of
some sort; and number of holidays of many religions involve ritial
meals. Civil occasions also have food associations: wedding cake,
post-funeral buffet; wedding rehersal dinner; wedding reception, etc.
In fact, the only occasion I can think of that *isn't* firmly
associated with food is a christening.

No I bloody well didn't.

Mistakes like that are why I don't usually attribute postings any
more. Better no attribution than risk wrongly accusing a specific
person of posting something that silly.

Sorry. I generally revert to "someone posted" when the attribution
seems unclear. I suppose you *did* have some input to the thread,
'though not in the way I quoted.
