7 sure signs you learned everything about Thanksgiving from Friends

Because we did.

IT’S JUST A regular old day for us, but over in the US Americans across the land have downed tools to celebrate Thanksgiving.

Most of what we know of the holiday comes from history books, American relatives, visits across the Atlantic, and of course, Friends. All ten seasons of Friends.

Here’s what Ross, Rachel, Joey, Phoebe, Monica and Chandler have taught us…

1. Yams. So many yams

Yams with marshmallows are a traditional Thanksgiving dish, and they were very fond of them in Friends.
