Celebs give thanks (and show off food) via Twitter

‘Tis the season for turkey (or, if you're Lady Gaga, Little Monster casserole, as she shows off in the photo above), awkward family gatherings and proclamations of thankfulness. Many celebs took to - where else? - Twitter this Thanksgiving to share what they're grateful for.

Some posts were silly, many were heartfelt and most gave thanks for you - their fans.

      Totally agree(except, I don't do satanism stuff). I'm sick of this BS of people thanking a fairy tale character. I'm thankful for my parents raising me in a great household where I always have food, love, shelter, educational support, and encouragement to do what I wanted. God didn't give me any of that. He's just a false beacon of hope and happiness. If you have that poor of self-esteem and confidence that you have to believe in a book written at a time when people thought the world was flat, then that is a pretty lame life. I'm sure God was looking out for the homeless guy who's just barely getting food on Thanksgiving!
