Thanksgiving feast

In Canada, we celebrate Thanksgiving on the second Monday of October with traditions that derive from ancient European festivities celebrating a bountiful harvest. To find the makings of a traditional feast of thanks, decipher the clues below.

Instructions: Each question consists of a series of clues. First, find the term that corresponds to each clue: for example, longing + 2nd letter + possess = wish + b + own. Then string the terms together to get the whole word: in this case, wishbone. But be careful! As with own and –one, you may have to rely on sound—and ignore spelling—to find the answer!

1. gown + croon
2. laugh + sound made by pirates + bestow
3. Middle Eastern inhabitant + fundamental
4. maize + sheep + manage + vegetable + exclamation
5. indefinite article + extra + hairpiece (slang) + you and me
6. river in Italy + tea in French + pedal digits
7. dairy product + fanatic + extinguish
8. sound of symbol for potassium + past tense of run + small fruit + condiment
9. sombre + exclamation of excitement
10. siphon + blood relatives + 16th letter of the Greek alphabet
