hey mata, i was wondering how defensive you were about the catch phrases in your animations...because a while ago, an episode of mr snaffleburger motivated me to write a new song. it's really awesome and everything, only the chorus ending is 'conform consume obey x2'. unsure.gif dat ok?

i hate using things that aren't mine unless i ask first. if it's no, that's fine, i can always change it.

You'll know when you are I suspect, but if you buy a car without thinking of the cost then you know that you've probably been rich for quite a while!

heya; sorry to butt in...
I beleive the Brits call their harvest celebration Harvest Home Day... Why, I don't know... and Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving... but in October, not November (Guess the climate is a bit colder, up there...). Seems just about every country out there has some kind of celebration for good harvests... which were more important, when people were more isolated, than today, when we have food from all over the world at our disposal...

Harvest Home Day? That's a new one on me. There was occasionally a 'harvest festival' back when I was at a very churchy school, but I don't think that it's an official day. The harvest festival was just an old pagan celebration of the harvest time that the Christian faith appropriated I suspect...

But no, we don't celebrate Thanksgiving day, because that was an American occasion and it hasn't been sold to us yet as a way to get us to buy cards. It would be quite a hard sell to get the rest of the world in on that one, considering it's all about native Americans saving starving colonists a few years before they were given all kinds of horrible illnesses and run off their lands. I think it's great that generosity has been remembered for so long, especially considering the history of what happened next.

In the UK we have Guy Fawkes night, November 5th, where we celebrate a terrorist who attempted to destroy the Houses of Parliment. I've never been certain whether we are celebrating his attempt or his failure... I suspect, knowing the British that it's probably the first option!

Do you know, I've never considered how weird it is to celebrate something like Guy Fawkes night before... it is actually really bizarre, isn't it?

And no, I've never heard of Harvest Home Day but my first school had a Harvest Festival assembly where we had to take in fresh fruit and vegetables (but normally ended up taking in canned things) to be given to local homeless people.

well thanksgiving isn't really a 'harvest day'...harvest isn't really involved hardly..at all. people either celebrate it to remember how important family is, or celebrate it, like you said mata, to remember the 'injuns'.

which is really something to remember if you think about it. the holiday of 'thanksgiving' was actually made in order to celebrate how many native americans were killed. but it's evolved into celebrating the one single instance in which one small band of native americans, and one small band of settlers were able to actually get along for a few days.

alot of the tribes were no cup of tea either...but i do admit that i think it was -not the pilgrims- but some other group that started it. knowing they came from britain, it doesnt surprise me in the least. biggrin.gif
