It’s Thanksgiving Day here in the U.S. And although the pandemic ended my annual tradition of watching the road race in my hometown my tradition of posting and listening to Alice’s Restaurant continues. If you’d like to join me in this tradition, here’s Arlo Guthrie performing Alice’s Restaurant

Happy listening! Happy Thanksgiving!
(Did you notice that this was posted exactly at noon?)

Fun fact! If you search for the song on Wolfram Alpha you will find a chart of Wikipedia traffic for the search term “Alice’s Restaurant.” So the question/ cultural history lesson for students is “why do people search for that term around Thanksgiving?”
