Bull-hockey. The American Thanksgiving has always been for giving thanks for a bountiful harvest.


So, while we're celebrating the thanks of a bountiful harvest, you guys are celebrating that the Prince of Wales recovered from a boil or something?

Okie-dokie...


Val . . .

the guy was simply stating that, as a native of Canada, he failed to realize certain aspects of his country's heritage.?!

Thanksgiving is about gathering with family and friends to rejoice on a bountiful harvest.

If the Prince of Wales had a boil on his butt [this day] back in '02 so be it!?

They, just as we, are celebrating the "bountiful harvest", of their gardens, of their lives, and of their country!!

Would you actualy condemn/deny the opportunity for anyone, including yourself, to rejoice in the fruits of one's labor!?

Thanksgiving and Remembrance Day

The first Thanksgiving Day in Canada after Confederation was observed on April 15, 1872, to celebrate the recovery of The Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) from a serious illness.

No record is found of a Thanksgiving Day between 1872 and 1879.


So, while we're celebrating the thanks of a bountiful harvest, you guys are celebrating that the Prince of Wales recovered from a boil or something?

Okie-dokie...


I don't remember giving thanks for The Prince of Wales getting better, or any other member of The Royal Family.

I do remember my family having a bountiful meal together and giving thanks for the what we had, even if it was meager.

Thanksgiving has always been about spending time with family, ever since I was a kid everyone would come together for Thanksgiving.

I have very fond memories of all the relatives being at the house when I was a kid and this holds true to today. It's about family, not history............

But history is interesting.

Your welcome in my igloo anytime.




Seriously though, I treasure the time I get to spend with the extended family.
In our fast paced world it's become more difficult to get everyone together for a meal and an evening of catching up on each others lives.

I've been to too many funerals.
I think families should get together to celebrate what they have more often than getting together to mourn who've they've lost.

We've had a recent loss in the family (last month), but we are so thankful for all we have. We are fruitful, and the family keeps multiplying, so for every loss there are new ones to love.

For that, I'm thankful.

Pagan's also celebrate this time of year, I forget the name they give it though. exuinox maybe?


Those stubborn old pagans call it Samhain and, like everyone else, are celebrating the harvest. The next after this will be the winter solstice in December when they celebrate the rebirth of the sun (the days getting longer) and call that one Yule.

I find it particularly nice that the 'celebrations of the harvest' span so many cultures and so much time.

Remember, though, that eating mass quantities of turkey and driving soon after are hazardous to your health. You should wait one hour after each serving before taking the wheel.

Woo Thanksgiving. Turkey, Gravy, Mashed potatoes, Cranberries, Stuffing, and PUMPKIN PIE. Then turkey sandwiches in your lunch for two weeks. Normally I have my whole huge family over, but this year we kept it pretty small.

I never really understood why you would have Thanksgiving in November, so close to Christmas. Better to space those overly-large meals out. But I guess you can't really change the day your country got discovered, huh
.

Apparently the US has something called Columbus Day today anyways though, and some places get the day off, SOME. What a ripoff. You get two Thanksgivings off?
. lol. Okay what is up with this... today is "Columbus Day Observed", but "Columbus Day Traditional" isn't until Wednesday. Make up your mindssss!


And let us not forget.. Japan has Health and Sports [something something] Day today. Ironic that it is on the day when us fat North Americans eat even more food than usual.

And while I'm at it, have a happy "Sukkot" and "Dia De La Raza" too.

You left out two (2) very important ingredients; turnip and the great gobs of whipped cream for the pumpkin pie. Otherwise, you are bang on.

BTW...I love that grizzly cub in your avatar.

cheers

That one is new to me I didn't that turkey day in Canada was in October, so I guess they get two turkeys one in October and one in November too.


Then Christmas also turkey day for some again, you know that is a lot of turkey in only two months.


Well between October and January, you have to eat as much Turkey as possible so the human body can survive for the whole of the year. Christmas, Thanks Giving, etc, are all made up so our body can get its Turkey intake...and thus the properganda from the Government...

Those evil NWO types are so smart and crafty...oh Turkey...-wonders off-

Happy Thanksgiving, All


Hope you all had a good weekend and enjoyed lots of yummy food and drink and time with family.

I had two Turkey dinners this weekend and I'm so stuffed I'm about to fall over
It's a great way to kick off the start of cold weather.

My insides....ooooohhh.

I had to work Sunday night, so I ate turkey for breakfast before I left, ate turkey for dinner when I got home, and I ate turkey when I woke up again. My veins are packed with gravy and pumpkin pie.

It is delicious martyrdom.
