The time-honoured tradition of Thanksgiving, celebrated by citizens of the United States on 25 November, was done a little differently this year by the inspirational Oprah Winfrey. The media personality invited a few South African guests to a Thanksgiving dinner.
Oprah, with the help of her chef Raymond Weber, brought the taste of Africa to the tongues of those around her with recreations of traditional South African dishes.
An Instagram post by the former talk show host had Mzansi drooling as Oprah moved her camera from one mouthwatering dish to another. Actor and producer Thando Dhlomo, as well as actress Nomzamo Mbatha, came into the shot as they amped each other up.
The Instagram post was shared by Twitter user @makhondlovu. She captioned the post with:

"How come I don't get an invite to Oprah's? I can make a mean braai (barbecue) myself...?"

Young man visits elderly lady yearly after she invited him to dinner by mistake
In other Thanksgiving news, Briefly News reported that a man who was accidentally invited for a thanksgiving dinner by a grandmother in 2016 is keeping the tradition going by visiting her annually.
They figured it was a mistake after sending selfies of each other, and Hinton asked if he could still go over for the dinner. Since then, Hinton has been spending thanksgiving with the grandma.
On 14 November, Hinton took to Twitter announcing that they are still celebrating the day together. He shared a screenshot of an invite from his new gran inviting him and his girlfriend Mikaela and his family over.
