Gamers in North America — and some other select parts of the World — may be celebrating the Thanksgiving Holiday today; we hope the day off work and school is at least partly being spent playing games, naturally. For many others it's just Thursday, so we'd like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving or a Happy Thursday, whichever applies.

Nintendo of America has sent its own message to celebrate the occasion, and has opted to use Kirby as the chosen mascot on Facebook and Twitter.

As dessert is arguably the best course, we just flat out wouldn't invite Kirby around, unless he does a sad face; it's hard to say no to the pink one.

For those of you celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday today, or those having a rad Thursday in any case, let us know what you're up to in the comments below.
