Just to let you know, tomorrow (Nov 24th) is Thanksgiving Day in the U.S., probably the most important holiday of the year for adults. (Christmas can be joyful, but Thanksgiving means more.)

If you post and no American answers, that's why. We're busy. Many people are traveling, while others are preparing the feast. Many people will take both tomorrow and Friday off.

Some will start their Christmas shopping on Friday, but I'm not into that.

Today, my DH and I drive 227 miles to Ames, to celebrate with our honorary nieces.

So if you post a post and response is disappointing, don't give up too soon.

Leenia - no worries. I'll cover for all of the other Americans; I'm working tomorrow so I'll just represent the USA :-) I'm sure there are a couple other 'Catters who will help me.

Sloppy snowstorm in VT, supposed to be worse in New Hampshire, so we decided to put off driving to Mass. for Thanksgiving with Kris's family until the cold grey dawn of Thursday. The weather would probably be OK later today, but day-before-Thanksgiving traffic, in the late afternoon and evening, is the worst of the entire year, and greater Boston area traffic is the worst to be found north and east of New York City. So any alternative to driving in that area at that time is preferable.

Might be a good day do experiment with different bridge saddles in the new Recording King and see if I can improve the action a little without starting a buzz.

My power was off earlier, but is on now and most of the wet snow got wetter. I usually manage to post something on Thanksgiving. There usually are people in the US posting, but maybe not as much.

I bought the birdies some food I ought to put out, including a little something for the carnivores.

Thanksgiving would have filled the winter gap between bonfire night and Christmas nicely in the UK, if we had such a thing. These days Christmas begins so early we don't feel its absence. As a kid, those 50 days used to drag by.

We don't really need a special day to be thankful, but it's a nice tradition and Jeri usually comes over to help us eat turkey and the fixin's, drink some nice wine, and maybe sing a little bit around the table.

This year, though, it seems we have an abundance of things to be thankful for and I, for one, am being very thankful every day and not just the US Thanksgiving Day.

It's a bit awkward - as I understand it the USAians thank God for getting rid of us, and it would be curious if we did the same...

Not so, Richard. We have Thanksgiving Day for the fact that the Pilgrims survived that first winter. England had nothing to do with it.

Actually, Richard, that had nothing to do with the original Thanksgiving proclamations. It was prayerful thanks for surviving ocean crossings, making it through hard winters, etcet etcet...combined with a harvest festival and thanks for the abundance to alleviate the next winter's hardship.

Nothing against our country of origin...had a problem, though, with George III and his cronies trying to cover their financial posteriors with the fruit of the colonists' labor.

Richard,
"Getting rid of" the British (English?), which happened long before my ancestors came to America, is the furthest thing from my mind during U.S. Thanksgiving holiday.

They lost to Stourbridge 2 0, in the cup, so no celebrations in Plymouth this week I'm afraid, , and , they are bottom of the league, and adrift, so they could end up anywhere.

It's not a question of where he grips it...er, I mean the pilgrims point of origin has nothing to do with them being thankful for surviving the first winter in the New World, BTNG...

Yes, indeed ~~ Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

Valerie & I, some years ago, had American friends who lived not far from us who always honoured us greatly by inviting us to their celebrations.

No thanksgiving Nov 24th here in a little North Wales village, we've been informed there'll be a power outage ALL DAY for repair work to be carried out! Now why can't they do that in the warm summer months?
Have a good thanksgiving all you USAers and keep safe.

Richard-
The Pilgrims were subjects of the British Empire. At leat until the Revolution, which happened a bit later.

In Canada, tomorrow, we have the weekly celebration of "Thursday."

I traditionally celebrate Thursday by starting the day with a Tim Hortons double double and a whole grain blueberry muffin.

Somewhat different from the traditional Wednesday celebration which begins with a Tim Hortons double double and banana nut muffin.
