Hugh Jackman, not too far from returning to the role of Wolverine for the last time (again), took to social media today to share a themed Thanksgiving image.

It doesn’t matter that Jackman is Australian and Thanksgiving is an American holiday; After all, Wolverine is Canadian herself, so it’s not like there isn’t a history of cross-cultural celebrations with this meme.
“I hope everyone celebrating enjoys a safe, high-calorie day with family and friends,” Jackman captioned the image. He also shared some Thanksgiving-inspired emojis.
