#Fandom5: Characters We’d Want at Our Thanksgiving Table



The Nerdy Girlie and SuperSpaceChick issued a challenge and we were very happy to oblige!

We organized a very scientific poll (read: Facebook) to find out which characters we’d like at our Thanksgiving table and here are the results!

1. Fred and George Weasley (Harry Potter)

Hadas: The Dowager Countess of Grantham (Downton Abbey)

Ooh boy, Lady Violet Crawley would definitely have some quips about American Thanksgiving, wouldn’t she?

  • This was such a hard one for me. I had so many I wanted to choose!

  • B.

    I feel like I need to make a 2nd post! I have Dean on my list as well!

  • Just make sure to invite George and Fred after the food is cooked. I can envision some trouble there ;)

  • A Thanksgiving dinner with Fred and George would be AMAZING!

  • Gabriela Menchaca

    Omg I wish I had thought of Lady Violet Crawley!! She would issue the classiest of insults and it would be awesome.


    • I’m in a Downton Abbey mood lately and am all about the Dowager.

  • Pretty sure my Sister would make her way to your table just for Fred and George. I think having Arya would be fun as well.

  • Girl inthe Nerd Shop

    The Weasley twins would provide all the entertainment you needed. Great list.

  • Fred and George are a great choice! I love Arya too, although I wouldn’t want to make her angry, she’d stab me with a fork or something! :’)

  • Oh the Countess, would make for some nice cheeky remarks! xx
