How to Make Sweet Potatoes For Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving would not be complete without sweet potatoes or yams. If you are not from America you may not be familiar with this vegetable. They originally came from South America, where they were native to the land. They are now grown in many other warm regions. They came to our shores long ago by slaves coming to America. Sweet potato can be cooked in the same ways as white potatoes. They do differ from white potatoes in that they can be used as pie filling. This is a very common practice in the American South.

First and probably most popular and most easy is baked sweet potatoes. You just wash the potatoes stab holes in the potatoes with a fork and then wrap them up individually in aluminum foil. Then bake the potatoes in the oven till they are soft. I suggest at least 90 minutes in a 325 degree oven.

Another popular recipe is twice baked sweet potatoes. First you bake the potatoes till soft, then you cut them in half and scoop out the ingredients into a large bow. Next you mash the potatoes. To the mashed potatoes you add butter, brown sugar and spices to suit your families taste. Then scoop the mix back into the skin and cover with bread crumbs. Bake in the oven till brown, usually 25 minutes.

Halloween only lasts just for day whereas Christmas lasts more than a week. For this reason, many wish if there could be a way to extend Halloween for a few more days.

When it comes to dressing, Halloween gives you a lot of freedom and you can go about wearing clumsy clothes disguising yourself and try to become a different character to draw the attention of all those present. Christmas has religious overtones and you visit the church and attend special prayers and sing carols.  On Christmas day, you are generally found wearing your best attire and you receive a lot of gifts – particularly if you are below 18 years.

A recent online voting has revealed Christmas holidays are more favored by families than Halloween holidays. FamilyFun.com, one of the popular online family resources, polled its visitors on Halloween and found that many families begin planning for the event weeks in advance and most of them expressed a preference for homemade costumes.
