Thanksgiving is a holiday where Americans gather together with relatives, watch football, and gorge themselves on turkey, stuffing, and the like until they are all ready to puke.

Well, pretty much, anyway. There's some stuff about the pilgrims having the first Thanksgiving with the Native Americans when they came over here...where they shared the bounty of the harvest and all that stuff. But I don't remember most of that as it's been a good 14 or 15 years since I was forced to make a pilgrim hat out of black construction paper in school and act out the whole thing.

In Canada (their Thanksgiving was last month), it's more of just a harvest celebration, from what I understand. None of the pilgrim-y stuff.

I rather enjoy Thanksgiving myself...though I didn't as a child. I have a HUGE extended family, so we had to rent a church every year to fit all of us under one roof. I usually ended up playing in the cemetery to escape my pesky cousins. That part was fun, but when it came time to eat I had to deal with irritating relatives asking me "Do you have a boyfriend yet?" and other ridiculous things that just serve to irritate a 10 year old.

But, now it's just my immediate family pretty much. We have it at my mom's house every year. This year the hubby's aunt and her hubby are driving in from Washington. I'm not very fond of her..so this should be interesting....

Oh, and by the way...the actual date for Thanksgiving this year is November 27th...sooo yeah this is just a tish bit early. biggrin.gif

I can't wait for that day. I will be done with all of my schoolwork (except for Library Studies, which is easy...)..AHAHAHAHA FREEEE!

Ahem. Dunno where THAT came from. smile.gif

Oh, I see - another chance for the entire country to ignore the fact that it nicked the land from the natives and persecuted them for centuries. Well, maybe that's just me being cynical (maybe definitely). Sounds like you couldn't wait for Christmas so you invented another festival to fill the time. Am I right?

But seriously, enjoy yo'selves guys. Feed the economy and eat well this Thanksgiving!

Yes America stole the country from the natives. That's something perfect little Englands never done *shakes head*.[/sarcasm]

well, you didn't see us try to kill every native that was here in a time when we WERE supposed to be civilised... dry.gif
back when we colonised, i should think circumstances may have been a little different as it was probably happening everywhere.
and what about the spanish? huh?

lol sorry, but i like to stick up for my people tongue.gif

Oh for goodness sake.

Yeah, we ignore that we stole this country all the time. rolleyes.gif Sure. That's why it's shoved down our throats every year in school. That's why my hometown was named after a tribe. Right. That must be it...of course! Because we're trying to ignore it!

Just like black history month is a way of ignoring slavery. rolleyes.gif

It all makes sense now. Thanks ever so much for enlightening me. Because you know, all of us are so much to blame for our ancestor's actions. Yep. I sure could have prevented my great great great whatever from stealing land..why didn't I?! Shame on me.

rolleyes.gif

The holiday isn't a way of ignoring what happened in the years following the first Thanksgiving. It's meant to be a way of..well..giving thanks....and for remembering that brief moment of peace in our countries history when Native Americans and pilgrims feasted together and celebrated.

Gah. Now I sound like a damned after school special. Well, no matter. The holiday has been in existence for quite a long time now, and is not simply something to hold us over until Christmas.

This isn't a thread to criticize Americans. There are plenty of those. Move on and go complain in those and leave us to our nice little happy holiday, please.

I don't know why we should be trying to be all superior the pilgrim came from here orginally so were just as much to blame! If were going to be all finger poitingy and blamey & they went to get away from being pursecuted over here any way. tongue.gif and any way were just probably jelous cause you's get an extra party on us! tongue.gif
So Anyway have a good one & eat way to much! biggrin.gif

You know what. You're ALL WRONG.

Thanksgiving isn't about pilgrims or native americans or lesbian rights...

It's all about the pie...

Anyhoo, Happy T-Day!! Have some pie!! *sets up little signs that say "Free Pie!" and begins serving*

OK, so we weren't exactly a nice empire ourselves, but at least we didn't invent a holiday to celebrate how nice we were when we really, really weren't.

Neither did we, Polo.

All the mean stuff our country ever did is shoved down our throat from the time we're born. All the time. Like I said before, the day isn't about pretending that we weren't ever naughty...it's about giving thanks for all the good stuff we have. Stuff like pie.

Now shoo. Leave us to our pie.

Yay for pie!

Just as an aside, around the time that the Native Americans were being persecuted etc was when the British Empire was finishing off a couple of hundred years of raping, pillaging, perseucting and basically being a bunch of complete bastards to more or less everyone in the world. So there you go.

Anyway, this is my first proper Thanksgiving stateside (spent last year's one in a hotel on my own in the desert in Cali), and the girly's folks are coming into town so we're cooking up a storm. From what I can gather, it's basically Christmas without the presents and the fat bearded bloke.

Mmmm....

I never really do anything for Thanksgiving anymore. My own family is half the country away from me, and it doesn't make sense to spend $300 on a plane ticket to spend only a weekend with them to celebrate one holiday (makes more sense to wait till the "big" holiday of christmas when there's generally more vacation time). I can't stand spending Thanksgiving with my boyfriend's family -- their idea of a Thanksgiving dinner is full of cheating. They hate cooking and they hate washing dishes, so barely anything, even for holidays, is home-cooked. They buy everything pre-baked from the grocery store. Pre-baked pie, pre-packaged salads, 10-minute potatoes (e.g. Hungry Jack or Betty Crocker brand), and so forth. Having grown up in a family that does everything from scratch for such holidays, it just seems to ruin it all when replacing all the homemade food with store-made crap.

Anyway, I don't really care to make a big deal out of it. Last year, my dude and I just ate macaroni and went about our regular daily business as if it were not a special day at all. And that's just fine with me. I want some pumpkin pie though. That's all I ask for this time. cool.gif
