There was plenty to be thankful for Tuesday at Columbus Elementary School, where kindergartners dressed in pilgrim and Native American Indian garb took part in a traditional Thanksgiving feast. "This is just a joy to have," kindergarten teacher Marilyn Hande said. "All the parents come out to help. " Students filled three long tables in the school cafeteria where they dined on turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, green beans, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. Kindergarten families bought the food at Glendale-based Billy's Deli.

For some bargain-hunters, Black Friday just isn't early enough. Around 6:30 p.m. Thursday, about 40 people stood outside Target at the Glendale Galleria, the line snaking onto Colorado Street. Honey Manuel of Silverlake was first in line, having been there since 2:30 p.m. "What I am doing now is an adventure," Manuel said as a band of teenagers stood nearby grooving to music playing from a phone inside the jacket pocket of their long- haired friend. PHOTOS: Black Friday shoppers hunt for deals In what is becoming something of a Thanksgiving tradition for retailers, businesses lured shoppers with Christmas sales several hours before the clock struck midnight Thursday, not long after some families cleared their tables of turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie. Across Southern California, shoppers were lining up for door-buster bargains, Black Friday deals and a shot at some of the most sought after gifts of the season.

Ben Godar Thanksgiving came a little early to one La Crescenta church, but no one seemed to mind. The deacons of La Crescenta Presbyterian Church treated more than 200 guests to a turkey dinner Sunday, complete with dressing, sweet potatoes and all the traditional fixings. The dinner was free, but people were encouraged to donate to the Deacons Fund. The church's 18 deacons spent Sunday morning and much of Saturday preparing the feast, which included what one organizer called "the world's biggest pot of Stove Top."

Rosette Gonzales Tacos, spaghetti, pot-stickers and Korean rice cakes aren't typical side dishes for Thanksgiving dinner. But this was not a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. It was an international Thanksgiving feast. Third-graders, their parents and teachers from Mountain Avenue Elementary School shared their food and culture Thursday while picnicking on the grass near the school. Each student brought a dish representative of their heritage and learned that Thanksgiving dinner is about more than turkey and pumpkin pie. "We stress that pilgrims are still coming to America today," said Denise Omartian, a third-grade teacher who has helped organize the feast for the past seven years to celebrate the various ethnicities at the school.

Last year, Penny Keaton, award-winning pie maker, let me print her Los Angeles County fair first prize-winning pumpkin pie recipe in time for Thanksgiving. The recipe we published did not include ingredients or directions for the pie crust. Penny had just started a new business, teaching classes in pie baking. Her pie crust ingredients and preparation technique were at the heart of her course. Since then, Penny's business has grown, aided by a local cooking school and an affiliation with King Arthur's flour.

I cheated. I admit it here before all seven of you readers. I cheated. Sure, my wife is disappointed. But she doesn't understand the seduction, the raw power this craving has over me, the mysterious carnal desire deep within my being. I couldn't hold back. I ate pumpkin pie Thanksgiving morning. It wasn't a leftover. It was breakfast. I couldn't wait until after dinner, and I don't regret it. Like vengeance, pumpkin pie is a dish best served cold — with a cup of coffee.

Eighth-grader Michelle Littlefield was having a challenging time serving bread rolls Monday at the end of the Thanksgiving buffet she and her classmates organized at Holy Redeemer School. Competing with turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing on the buffet line, organized by the La Crescenta Pioneer Club, was a tall order. “Maybe because I’m last and they don’t have room on their plates,” Littlefield said. A few dozen seniors were treated to the 14th consecutive Thanksgiving Day feast Monday at Holy Redeemer School.

A gaggle of natives and prim little pilgrims sat down to eat at Verdugo Woodlands Elementary School on Monday afternoon. "Happy Thanksgiving!" they all shouted, before diving into the turkey sandwiches, corn muffins, grapes and popcorn set before them. The kindergarten students were in full feather for a pint-sized reenactment of the first Thanksgiving. Each of the two classes involved were split into natives and pilgrims, with both groups dressing the part. They also made and exchanged gifts of cereal and pasta necklaces in the tradition of the inaugural feast long ago. "With the kindergartners it's easier for them to re-enact," said Lynette Miketa, one of two teachers of the class.

Almost every kid loves to help carve the jack-o'-lantern at Halloween: digging into the squishy mush up to your elbows, pulling out the innards, saving the seeds for toasting, and consulting with the adult knife-wielder on the number of teeth, the shape of the eyes and whether it should be friendly or really scary. Finally, there is the magic of giving it life by lighting the candle and placing it on the dark porch. What does this have to do with food?

I never dress up for Halloween. But as the holiday season progresses through Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's, I could easily pass for an ogre. That's because this time of year, when family and friends come together, is also a time when I find myself in the same awkward situation year after year: Someone at a get-together wants to talk grammar with me, thrilled to finally have someone to share their disgust with rampant language abuse. Then they tell me their No. 1 pet grammar peeve.

It all started Nov. 1. I was strolling by the office of a co-worker and heard Nat King Cole singing “The Christmas Song.” At the time, I didn’t think much of it. But then a few days later, I ventured into Glendale to do some shopping. And there they were. The first Christmas decorations. It seems the yuletide floodgates opened early this year. I can’t say I’m surprised since that levee seems to break earlier every year. I expect that sometime around 2012 Christmas will officially start July 5. That is, if the world doesn’t end first.
