So I’ve decided to muscle in on The Broke and the Bookish‘s fantastic Top Ten Tuesday meme! This week it’s a Thanksgiving freebie so I’ve gone for…
🌈 Top Ten Fictional Families I’d like to spend Thanksgiving With 🌈
We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK but from what I’ve seen on TV it’s like a mini Christmas – lots of good grub and spending time with your friends and family. Sounds great! Anyway here are some fictional families I’d like to eat, drink and be merry with for Thanksgiving..
Arthur, Molly, Bill, Charlie, Percy, Fred, George, Ron and Ginny. Definitely my favourite ginger, wizarding family and probably my favourite fictional family of all time. The Burrow looks super cozy and I bet Mrs. Weasly puts on a good spread! If they welcome you like they welcome Harry, you’ve found your second home.
I haven’t read Harper Lee’s new book, so in my mind Atticus Finch is still the perfect father. Noble, caring and compassionate – definitely someone I’d love to sit down and have a cup of tea with!
I like that the Murrays are all quite different but care so deeply for one another. You know you’re going to come home with your brain absolutely on fire with ideas. Plus, it would be super interesting to talk inter-dimensional travel with them round the dinner table!
The Peach Crew
Definitely the most untraditional family on the list! I don’t even know what to call them as a collective. So yes, technically they are not a family (they are not even the same species) but I love to think of James and company settling down in New York and the bugs becoming James’ surrogate parents. They’d definitely do a better job than Aunts Sponge and Spiker did!
The Mortmains are a real family with great flaws and qualities and are anything if not endlessly interesting. Topaz’s eccentricity, Cassandra’s realism… You’d definitely not be bored in that household. Also, Thanksgiving in a castle would be spectacular, although I’d give the running around outside naked with Topaz a pass!
Sam, Gaffer, Rosie and the (thirteen!) kids are just the most adorable hobbit family! Can you imagine sitting in Bag End in front of the fire, eating some cake with your tea and Sam retelling his journey with the Fellowship. That would be a dream come true…
