So once upon a time, there was a group of Canadians inhabiting various corners of Ghana. They knew that they would be coming together for very important work-related happenings where they would all ponder and discuss and pontificate on important development matters.

But really, in their hearts, they were tugged towards that epitome of coming together-ness, Thanksgiving, which they were missing in their Ghanaian context. But wait! There is an answer! These intrepid Canadians coined a phrase to describe their newfound intentions, Gangksgiving. Combining their Ghanaian context, Gangsta natures, and the traditional activities of Thanksgiving, a vision was born.

Trekking various food items cross-country, and even cross-continent, cranberries, coleslaw, apple crumble, garlic mashed potatoes (and yams), stuffing, a live turkey, and a full pig made their way to the Gangksgiving table, where 26 Canadians and 8 Ghanaians indulged in a truly joyful and belly-full meal. Complete with gangsta-poses and all.

Arnie the turkey. With stuffing and bacon. Incredible

Vegetables! They exist!
