From family dinners to Friendsgivings to Black Friday shopping, students at Seminole High School enjoy a variety of Thanksgiving traditions. However, during a week full of food comas and free time, things can quickly get out of hand. We asked Noles for their funniest, scariest, and craziest Thanksgiving tales — and they did not disappoint. Our favorite responses are compiled below; names have been omitted, and some responses have been edited for clarity.

Double, Double, Turkey and Trouble; Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble!

“My mom isn’t the best chef in the world, and this year, she decided to make a turkey instead of buying it from Publix for Thanksgiving. All in all, she got too wine drunk, put it in the oven, and forgot about it. A couple hours later, I smelled something burning and I was able to save our house before it burned down. We didn’t have turkey for Thanksgiving.”

Lions, Zebras, and Horses — Oh My!

“I was going to the store to get candy and food. You wouldn’t believe it, when I was walking back home, I thought a lion was chasing me. I started thinking about it whether it was a lion or a zebra, but I was getting chased so I kept running. That thing was still following me. Then I looked back again and realized it was a horse.”

Hamster’s Last Hurrah

“On a hot day during the break, I went swimming because I was sweating and wanted to cool off. I have a hamster named Blizzard and he was in his little ball. He ended up following me into the pool. The ball broke while he was in the pool. He drowned and died.”

What’s Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Sadness Sunday. 

“I pretended to do my homework — and by that, I mean I had all my homework but I just didn’t touch it for about 5 days — and then on Sunday night I did all of the homework that I was supposed to be doing all week.”

Broke — And Not From Black Friday Shopping 

“I was walking and my dad and my sister were riding a dirt bike. I accidentally got too close to it, and they ran over my toe and it broke.”

A Hog, My Hair, and a Jog

“I was walking to the store to get stuff for my hair and when I left the store I saw this big black object chasing me. After running for 20 minutes I realized it was a hog.”
