Consider Sunday the last opportunity for awhile to watch a Turkish folk dance, try a manti (Turkish dumpling) or take a picture with a soldier guarding a replica of the Trojan Horse. Turkey came to the Orange County Fairgrounds this weekend for the fourth Anatolian Cultures & Food Festival. However, event organizers said the festival will head to New York next year before returning to Orange County in 2015.

KAREN WIGHT This year, it's my turn to host Thanksgiving dinner -- and my family is a tough crowd. I have a brother from Nashville who's a professor at Vanderbilt and a gourmet cook (brains meets burners), a sister-in-law from Finland who's a vegetarian, a mother who's never cooked a meal in her life but likes anything fried or pralined, a sister who's favorite home is Mexico City and likes her turkey "mole," and my own three fussy kids whose idea of a perfect main course is mashed potatoes and gravy.

Turkeys. I've fried them, baked them in a bag, barbecued them and wrapped them in foil. I've undercooked them, overcooked them and everything in between. I'm always up for a better way to get to the finish line. But I still think the oven-baked, occasionally-basted turkey is best. No red dots that may or may not pop up. Just a meat thermometer and a little TLC (Turkey Lovin' Care). Personally, I think that the best thing about a turkey is the fact that it holds stuffing.

LOLITA HARPER Ah. Only 36 tiny hours before my impending tryptophan high. You know, the kind of mood-altering climax that comes only after a satisfying meal of tender turkey, perfectly-seasoned stuffing, steamed vegetables and gravy. With my mind on my turkey and my turkey on my mind, the article in Tuesday's Pilot about Tara Anderson's fifth-grade class at Newport Heights Elementary School, really grabbed my attention. Using a clever and imaginative lesson plan, Anderson read the children a story by Dav Pilkey titled "Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving," in which all the pint-sized characters liberated turkeys from farmer McNugget's confinement.

A week-and-a-half ago, Someone Cares Soup Kitchen wasn't quite sure where it would get the money for its 26th annual Thanksgiving Day meal. Shannon Santos, the Costa Mesa soup kitchen's executive director, got her answer when the founder of Premiere Health Services, Susan Scott, called. "She said she wanted to cover the cost, and I shrieked," Santos said. "When Susan called it was just a godsend. For that to happen, it's part of the magic that goes on here. We have a saying, 'We're going to put it out there in the universe,' and the universe always gives back twice-full.

A group of students set out to understand the deep-rooted tension between Armenians and Turks in the wake of the continuing disputes over the 1915 Armenian genocide. After spending 10 days traveling around the two countries, talking to politicians, journalists, academics and nongovernmental agencies, UC Irvine senior Yolanda Espiritu saw just how many roadblocks the two countries face at the state level. But she also saw cooperation at the community level. "It's just a positive example that Turks and Armenians can live together and work together," Espiritu said.

I was shocked and angered to read Joseph Serna's story "Berardino: City is not to be trusted" on Dec. 15 in which union boss and recent Orange County Fair Board appointee Nick Berardino moved to cut Costa Mesa's ties with the annual Barrett-Jackson auto auction. For those who don't know, Berardino is the $200,000-a-year head of the Orange County Employees Assn. and was recently appointed to the Orange County Fair Board by Gov. Jerry Brown as a payback to big labor for getting the governor elected.

Let's face it — America just wouldn't be the same without the greatness that is Thanksgiving. After all, it is the one day of the year when it's completely excused, if not encouraged, to be obsessed with food. It's the one day of the year when turkey isn't processed into glistening disks of lunch meat. It's the one day of the year when we gobble down stuffing, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole and similar foods that are pretty much never eaten any other day. It's the four to five days of the year when we eat the same meal, and its creative variations, for every meal.
