These are culturally confusing times. A lot of the English language Internet is filled with Thanksgiving-related news and features. But nobody in Australia (and, we suppose, the UK) cares about Thanksgiving. It’s an American holiday.

But as much as we’d like to ignore it, Thanksgiving is happening. It’s today (well, technically, it starts tonight AEDT) and it’s all around us and there’s nothing any of us can do to stop it.

As for us, we’re not even going to bother trying. In fact, we’re fully embracing it by presenting the below funny video, which features Giada De Laurentiis offering tips on how to tune out your family members at Thanksgiving dinner.

Why should you care? Well, at some point, you’re going to want to stop listening to your family members at the dinner table. That is not a cultural phenomenon unique to America.

Also, Giada (we’re on a first name basis, as far as any of us know) is on SBS’s newly launched Food Network!

It’s called synergy, you guys.


Giada At Home is on every day at 4pm on Food Network.
